Monastrell (mon-a-STRELL)

Widely planted, very late-ripening grape that originated in Valencia, Spain. Today it is used mostly in the central part of that country, in provinces such as Jumilla, to make powerful, dark, dense red wines. See the main entry for mourvèdre (the French name of the grape).
