Rioja Reserva

Montecillo Rioja Reserva

Tasting Notes

Clean and brilliant, deep cherry red with russet rim, the Rioja Reserva has spicy notes, and vanilla and black fruits mingled with liquorice and mint nuances. It has good structure and elegant tannins, and a long finish for a sheer class wine.

Varieties

100% Tempranillo

Technical Notes

A second fermentation took place spontaneously in undergrounds tanks, after which the wine was transferred to handcrafted American oak casks, where it was aged for 18 months minimum followed by a period in bottle of at least 12 months.

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.

Did you know fact

Established in 1874, Bodegas Montecillo is one of the oldest wineries in the D.O. Rioja. Montecillo maintains its ancient underground ‘bodega’ where hand stacked bottles remain undisturbed until reaching optimal roundness. Montecillo wines are crafted to enjoy a long bottle life; they continue bottle ageing longer than those from other wineries in the region.
