2019 RQ Jose Ulloa Navarro - Spain Monastrell
Like Navarro’s harrowing wildly juicy tales, this wine will entrance and entice the palate with a voluptuous headiness and earthy appeal that will have your glasses raised! This dry wine* unveils aromas of black and red berries, black pepper, and spices from oak. On the palate, it presents woody flavors and polished tannins for a bold finish.
It was in Salamanca where José would start his life as a bullfighter. Yet only two years later, he abandoned it for smuggling. Obtaining goods in Gibraltar, he and a partner were in charge of distribution. Called again to the bullring for the celebration of King Ferdinand VII in 1814, José’s life and love took a drastic turn. Ulloa was on horseback to fight, when an accident forced him to return home unexpectedly. His unfortunate return led him to discover the infidelities of his wife. After killing the lover and the unfaithful wife, he found no other solution to his destroyed life than enlisting in the squad of bandits known as, Los Siete Niños de Ecija. All except José, were captured and executed in 1817.
Saludos to a man who lived with such passion!
