Discover More About Our Products

Hecula 2012 is a greedy and generous wine from old vines aged 60 to 80 years.

Robert Parker: "Its opaque purple color is followed by copious aromas of blueberries, black raspberries, camphor, licorice, white flowers and a chalky limestone/dusty character. Full-bodied, rich and well-balanced, it is an incredible value".

4 /5

Het best van het voedsel. Met vrienden en prettig gesprek.
Ik hield niet van de kleur, met bruine randen. Vooral merkt men aroma's van rook in deze Bodegas Castaño op. Zeer duidelijke smaak naar frambozen.

- A deep purple colour in the glass, exuding rich, elegant aromas of blueberries, ripe raspberries and liquorice with a subtle floral touch and a chalky character. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with an inviting richness and soft fruit that is integrated with oak notes in this extremely well-balanced red.

Bodegas Castano Hecula Monastrell do Yecla 2014


I decided not to pair it with any dish. We drank a pair of bottles of Hécula 2017 with my friend.
Deep colour at first sight. Scents of raspberry. Do not know what had to taste like, but it was tasty.

I bought it in Uvinum and It arrived immediately.
Red ruby colour with reddish brown tinges. The raspberry aromas are quite present. It is the softest wine of Yecla.
