Where It's From

Country / Spain

View more wines from Spain

The picturesque countryside of Spain is littered with vineyards large and small, and offers up some of the best value available on the wine market today. You can consistently fine critically-acclaimed Spanish wines selling for less than their counterparts from other wine-producing countries. The Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions are most famous, and there's nowhere else in the world where you'll find as many world-class Tempranillos.

Teso la Monja Romanico 2020 / 750 ml.

2020 / 750 ml.

RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Jan 2023
The entry-level red 2020 Románico was produced with Tinta de Toro grapes from younger vines (10 to 35 years old, most of them grafted because it’s forbidden to plant ungrafted…) in the villages of Valdefinjas and Toro. It fermented in a traditional way, foot trodden and with soft pump-overs, with indigenous yeasts selected from their own vineyards and matured in used French oak barrels for six months but not for 100% of the volume, as they keep part of the wine unoaked and in stainless steel. It has 14.85% alcohol and a pH of 3.73. This is clean, juicy, modern and with a velvety and luxurious texture (a constant across the portfolio) with integrated oak. It’s a fresher vintage, a little in the style of 2014 or 2010. 95,100 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2022. (Luis Gutiérrez)

A lively, medium-bodied red, with flavors of blackberry and black plum fruit, tea leaf, graphite and mesquite layered with light, taut tannins. Drink now. 10,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported. (Alison Napjus)

I also got to taste the 2016 Románico in the same sitting as the 2015, which is always a good opportunity to compare both vintages. 2016 was a slow and cool harvest following some rains, and this wine has slightly lower alcohol and more freshness. This has more definition, more finesse and a subtle touch of fennel and aromatic herbs that adds an extra dimension to it. It’s still young but already approachable (better with food), with a juicy palate and really fine tannins. There is good ripeness without excess. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2018.

Teso La Monja Alabaster 2009 / 750 ml.

2009 / 750 ml.

Item #: 78924

SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - May 31, 2012
Blackberry, blueberry, smoke, licorice, clove and mineral notes are harmonious and complex in this rich, smooth red. It has plenty of structure, but remains seamless through the long, toasty finish. Beautiful modern-style character. Best from 2013 through 2022. 125 cases imported.
RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Apr 2013
Cropped on October 14 and 15 at ten hectoliters per hectare, the 2009 Alabaster is similar to the 2010 in that it is a little reticent at first and demands coaxing from the glass. There are notes of black currant pastels, cedar and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with nicely integrated oak, the tannins not quite as fine as the 2010, but supporting more fruit toward the finish. Blackberry, brine, touches of cedar and orange zest inform the finish, which has good weight but does not quite have the precision of the succeeding two vintages. Drink 2014-2025+.

Teso la Monja Almirez 2014 / 750 ml.

2014 / 750 ml.

Item #: 82379

WE9292 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 11/1/2016
This open-knit, yet chunky Toro features sweet, oaky aromas of plastic, mocha and baked plum. Concentrated and creamy on the palate, it tastes of chocolate, vanilla and savory blackberry. Full, chunky and bold but balanced on the finish; drink through 2023.
RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Aug 2016
More expensive is their 2014 Almirez, which spends much longer time in oak and comes from vines 15–65 years old in slightly higher elevations. I didn’t see much difference in this wine from its less-expensive sibling, although this one had more grilled meat and almost Provençal, Châteauneuf Du Pape-like blood characteristics, with blackberry and cassis, full body and a long, lusty finish. Some licorice also makes an appearance in this impressively constituted wine. Drink it over the next decade.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - May 2017
Lurid ruby. Fragrant, oak-spiced cherry and dark berries on the nose, along with suggestions of game, vanilla and woodsmoke. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering concentrated cherry, blueberry and spicecake flavors that stretch out and become sweeter on the back half. In a rich yet lively style, finishing with powerful, spicy thrust and smooth framing tannins.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 15, 2016
This rich red is plush yet graceful, delivering expressive flavors of raspberry, cherry, cola and toast, supported by well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Big yet balanced, in the modern style. Drink now through 2024. 1,000 cases made.
