Bodegas Juan Gil belongs to the Grupo Juan Gil Bodegas Familiares, who also own the Ateca winery and make Honoro Vera. There is a Monastrell varietal derived exclusively from organically farmed vineyards planted on limestone soils with a low yield. They have a continental climate with Mediterranean influences. A dry and arid climate with very little rainfall. Winters are cold, reaching temperatures below 0, in contrast to the hot summers with temperatures reaching 40 degrees. The poor yield gives the grape a high quality.
Complex nose of ripe plums and rich red fruit, combined with licorice and fig characters. On the palate, the wine is generous, rich, and spicy – weighty with good, concentrated red and black fruit, fine tannins, and fresh acidity on the finish.
