Primitivo Quiles

Señor Don Primitivo Quiles is one of the great figures of Spanish wine. His bodega in Monovar is the oldest in Alicante (since 1780), and probably in all the comunidad Valenciana. They have been a family-owned winery for over 100 years and maintain of the oldest Soleras on the market, dating back to 1892. It is a highly valued treasure in wine cellars all over Europe and a jewel of a wine that is a source of pride for the wine-making industry in Alicante.

The Fondillon is 100% Monastrell harvested in late October or November then placed in a Solera system that began in 1948. While the Cono 4 is a joven style made in large cono foudres that is a great expression of the warm Alicante climate yet also very earthy and complex - this is one of the best deals in the book!
