The Bodegas Castaño Hécula double magnum 3.0 l is a first-class red wine. It offers a wonderfully dense, purple-red color. Poured into a red wine glass, this red wine from the Old World reveals wonderfully expressive aromas of blackberry, rounded off by toasted wood, blackcurrant and chocolate, which are contributed by the barrel ageing.
The Hécula double magnum 3.0 l from Bodegas Castaño is perfect for all wine lovers who like it dry. However, it is never austere or brittle, as you would naturally expect from a wine. This dense red wine is full-bodied and multi-faceted on the palate. Thanks to its vital fruit acidity, the Hécula double magnum 3.0 l is fantastically fresh and lively on the palate. On the finish, this wine from the Murcia wine-growing region, which ages well, finally impresses with its considerable length. Once again, there are hints of blackberry. Mineral notes from the loam and clay-dominated soil are added to the finish.
Vinification of the Hécula double magnum 3.0 l from Bodegas Castaño

Here, the vines dig their roots deep into loam and clay soils. The grapes for this red wine from Spain are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimum ripeness. After the grape harvest, the grapes are quickly transported to the winery. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks and small wooden barrels at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally drawn off.
