More than 140 years after its foundation bodegas montecillo continues to demonstrate its commitment to excellence and its focus on producing top quality wines year after year. Montecillo crianza is a classic rioja complex and balanced – perfect for enjoying on any occasion. Production and ageing each varietal is fermented separately at a controlled temperature (+/- 25ºc) in ganimede tanks. A proportion of must from each tank is bled off to concentrate it. Once finished the wine is racked using gravity to underground cement tanks where malolactic fermentation starts spontaneously. 18 months’ ageing in american oak barrels new or one year-old with medium or light toast. Finally the wine is bottle-conditioned for at least six months to obtain a balanced wine that is ready to drink. Tasting note: colour: brilliant expressive cherry red colour of medium-high intensity. Aroma and flavour: nose of great intensity and elegance. Fresh red fruits such as strawberries raspberries and cherries stand out wrapped in hints of patisserie and aniseed with a background of violets and resinous notes. Lively expressive and flavorful on the palate it encourages you to drink another glass. It has a most agreeable mouth feel long lasting and irresistible with sweet polished tannins harmoniously integrated with the natural acidity. Long finish where high quality notes of oak such as toast coconut vanilla and toffee stand out. Food pairings and serving suggestions: ideal with stews charcuterie and all kinds of mediterranean-style meats and roasts. Serving temperature: 18º c – bodegas montecillo
