Castillo de Belarfonso is a Grenache wine from El Real de San Vicente, whose granitic soil brings out the full potential of the variety. It’s a young wine aged six months in 500 and 700-liter French oak barrels. This barrel-aging process keeps all its fruity notes intact while remaining a refreshing and easy drinking wine, which the French call “vins de soif” (thirst quenchers), but not without certain complexity.

Burgundy red color with medium intensity, clear and bright. On the nose, medium intensity of red fruits (cherries, blueberries), undergrowth, floral notes and fresh aromatic herbs that, together with mineral notes, give the wine a surprising nose reminiscent of a stroll through the countryside.
On the mouth, it’s simply delightful with how refreshing, pleasant and easy drinking it is. Good structure, rustic tannins albeit nicely integrated and smooth. It fills the mouth with an abundance of fruits.
The aromas you perceive on the nose explode in the mouth, filling you with pleasant sensations that, together with notes of chocolate, black pepper and liquorice from barrel-aging in French oak, prompt you to continue enjoying it.
You’ll like it…because it’s pleasantly refreshing and gets better and better with every sip.
Here’s something else…Parker gives it 91 points.
