Elaboration process:

More than one hundred and forty years after its foundation, Bodegas Montecillo continues year in year out to demonstrate its commitment to excellence and wines of the finest quality. Montecillo Reserva is an honest Rioja made in an extraordinary way, combining intensity and fine aromas with an opulent body.

Vintage: 2010

Grape variety: 100% Tempranillo

Origin: D.O.Ca Rioja, selected vineyards in the Rioja Alta area.

PRODUCTION AND AGEING

Fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of 26°C, with a maceration period of 20 days with the grape skins. The second fermentation occurs naturally in our underground cellars. The wine is then transferred to traditional oak casks to begin the 24-month ageing process, followed by a 16-month refining period in the bottle.

ORGANOLEPTIC CHARACTERISTICS

COLOR: Clean and bright. Intense cherry red with a reddish rim.

AROMA AND TASTE: Spiced notes, vanilla and dark fruits combined with hints of licorice and mint. Good structure and elegant tannins with a long aftertaste.

OUR RECOMMENDATION

To accompany grilled or barbecued red meat, all kinds of stews and casseroles, including mildly spicy dishes. It is a fresh wine with a certain potency, which also makes it a perfect partner for a wide range of cheeses

Serving temperature: 18°C.
