In keeping with Viña Extremeña’s appreciation of its regional culture and history, this wine is named in honor of a medieval monastery in Calera de León, which appears on the label’s artwork. It’s a blend based on the Tempranillo grape, with some Cabernet Sauvignon and others also included. Monasterio de Tentudia is often regarded as a characteristic and prime example of the Extremadura style of red wine.
But that’s not all.
When we visited their winery in early December we discovered that Viña Extremeña also offers Monasterio de Tentudia in a very special packaging and presentation.
