Bodegas Carchelo is one of the newly founded wineries in the region of Jumilla, which has made a fabulous triumphal procession in the last few years.
Bodegas Carchelo - with Monastrell and tradition to success
The reasons for this success lie in the constant Mediterranean climate, the grape variety Monastrell and in a few winemaker personalities. One of them is Agapito Rico! He brought the Monastrell back into the conversation worldwide and made it a cult under the name "Carchelo".
Nowadays, Agapito is no longer the youngest, so he sold large shares of his bodega to two local young entrepreneurs a few years ago. One of them is Juan Sielva. He had been convinced by the Monastrell and Carchelo, respectively, many years before, and he was also enthusiastic about the culture of the winery from the beginning. Fortunately, he was keen to take over the tradition of the winery from the very beginning. Juan Sielva kept the name, but introduced a new design for the labels and took care of some more progress in the wine cellar. He also ventured into new creations with his love of experimentation to add a bit of refinement to Carchelo 's product range. With success! Last but not least, it is also his dedication that perpetuates the recipe for success of the Carchelo winery. Agapito Rico is still active in the background and is always available with valuable tips for the successor.
Terrain from Roman times, cooling breeze from the sea - that is the Bodegas Carchelo
The Bodegas Carchelo are located in the Levante region in the southeast of Spain. Here, sun-drenched tasty grapes thrive on the vineyards of the Jumilla winery, from which the red wine is made. The terrain is considered to be quite modern. And this although it was already known at the time of the Romans. Of course, a lot has happened in the intervening years. What has remained, however, is the warming sun and the light breeze from the sea. Both provide optimal ripening conditions and contribute to the unmistakable taste of the Carchelos.
The secret of the Carchelo
The Carchelo has long since conquered the whole world with its finesse and aroma. Wine critics praise that you can literally taste the sun. Certainly, the maturation in the barrel, which takes a full six months, will contribute to this. This is followed by at least three more months of aging in the bottle. The Carchelo consists mainly of the grape variety Monastrell, but is varied with some individual grapes. The result is a modern, powerful red wine that tastes of fresh berries and knows how to seduce with a spicy note.
And these are the grape varieties of the winery Bodegas Carchelo
