Montecillo reserva: montecillo wines show extraordinary quality commitment since 1874 crafting outstanding award-wining wines. Montecillo reserva is an honest and extraordinarily well crafted rioja wine that combines sublime intensity and aromatic finesse with an opulent body. Varietals / blend: 100% tempranillo montecillo wines are crafted only with spanish indigenous tempranillo grapes from la rioja alta perfect for elegant and longterm aging wines. Origin & terroir: d. O. Ca rioja located in spain´s cool north with variations in altitude chalky clay soils plenty of rain and long springs and autumns. Crafting & aging fermentation at a controlled temperature of 26ºc/79ºf with a maceration contact period with skins for 20 days. The second fermentation took place spontaneously in underground tanks after which the wine was transferred to handcrafted french and american oak casks where it aged for 24 months. The wine was then rounded off in bottle for at least 16 months before its release. Sensory evaluation look: clean and brilliant. Deep cherry red with russet rim. Aromas & palate: spicy notes vanilla and black fruits mingled with nuances of liquorice and mint. Good structure and elegant tannins. A sheer class wine with a long finish. Serving & food pairing an ideal companion for grilled or barbecued red meat and all types of stew including slightly spicy dishes. A powerful wine that enhances the flavor of rich or cured cheeses like manchego. – bodegas montecillo
