"Julia Casado has ploughed her own furrow like no other winemaker I know, seeking out old-vine Monastrell from the elevated areas of Bullas to make beautifully aromatic and characterful natural wines. Casado's flagship wine, La del Terreno, exemplifies her lightness of touch with this variety, which she describes as 'tough...but with a really tender heart, like wood enveloping a flower'."
