The Julia Monastrell from Bodega De Moya is a full-bodied, grape-varietal wine from the Valencia region. This red wine is dedicated to his mother-in-law Julia.
In the glass, this wine shines in a clear ruby red with light red reflections. The bouquet reveals a multi-layered, multi-faceted aroma: juicy blackberry and raspberry meets ripe currant with gentle hints of roasted notes. The aromas of the nose of elderberry and cedar are underlined. The fresh acidity on the palate harmonizes wonderfully with the berry, woody variety of aromas and the round, structured body. The finale impresses with its wonderful length.
