The barrel-aged Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate from the wine-growing region of Murcia reveals itself in the glass in a dense purple red. The first nose of the Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden box presents nuances of blackberries. The fruity aspects of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel ageing and even more fruity, balsamic nuances.
On the palate, the Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate from Bodegas Castaño opens wonderfully aromatic, fruity and balanced. Some wines are dry on the label, others really are. This red wine belongs to the second group, as it was bottled with just 1.7 g of residual sugar. The texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully dense on the palate. Thanks to its lively fruit acidity, the Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate is wonderfully fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this well-maturing red wine from the Murcia wine-growing region, more precisely from the Yecla DO, finally delights with a remarkable aftertaste. The finish is also accompanied by mineral notes from the clay and loam-dominated soils.
Vinification of the Bodegas Castaño Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate
The basis for the powerful Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate from Spain are grapes from the Monastrell grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Murcia. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of loam and clay. Once perfect physiological ripeness is ensured, the grapes for the Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate are harvested exclusively by hand without the use of strenuous and less selective machinery. After the grape harvest, the grapes are transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel tanks and small wooden barrels at controlled temperatures. At the end of fermentation, the Hécula Magnum 1.5 l wooden crate can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for 6 months.
