Montecillo Edicion Limitada (Limited Edition)
Edicion Limitada appears cherry red with a very blue rim and is very deeply colored, whilst possessing great intensity. During oxygenation, notes of ripe black fruit mixed with chocolate and vanilla appear. On the palate it is strong, with a noble and silky tannin that coats the mouth. Black fruit reappears with memories of plum and toasted flavors with a very persistent sweet finish.
75% Tempranillo and 25% Graciano.
With approximately 15 days between the harvest of the two varieties, they were harvested by hand and fermented in small capa- city stainless steel tanks with cons- tant pumping-over. Malolactic fermentation in underground cement tanks. They were aged separately in barrels of which 20% were 100% French oak (60% of them were new) and 80% mixed, for 20 months. After a final racking the final blend was made and they spent six more months as a "harmonious blend" in the barrel. This is followed by at least two years in bottle before release.
Ideal to accompany Red meat, game, well-cured charcuterie, gourmet dishes and haute cuisine. Serving temperature: 18ºC/64ºF.
Edición Limitada expresses the eternal and authentic Rioja. It is the alliance of two ancestral varieties, Tempranillo and Graciano, offering forth an extraordinary wine, of which we produce only 34,860 numbered 750 ml bottles and 950 magnums, each signed by Montecillo's winemaker, Mercedes García.
