YECLA

Yecla is another historical region that has been eclipsed in the last few decades, though one family (the Castanos) have helped restore the region to some semblance of its lustrous past. This is a much smaller version of Jumilla, with similar grapes, elevation, climate and limestone–rich soils. While chalk in the vineyards usually makes for lightly colored reds, the best producers in the region are making multilayered wines with intense color and pretty aromatics. Dessert wines can excel here too. Monastrell is the overwhelming favorite variety among the vineyards in Yecla, and it can be special when grown in these limestone–rich soils.
