Producer Summary:Bodegas Montecillo was established in 1870, making it the third winery to be established in Rioja and the first in Fuenmayor. Fuenmayor is one of the towns with the longest history and tradition in Rioja Alta. Named after the unique landscape, Montecillo (a small hill or hillock), provides the perfect climatic and geological conditions to produce wines of elegance, complexity and balance.
Short Tasting Note:Aromas of red sweet fruits with creamy vanilla and toast notes from the oak barrels used in the winemaking process. A silk-textured palate is structured by balanced acidity and polished tannins that lead to a long and harmonious finish.
Long Tasting Note:Tempranillo sourced from historic vineyards in Rioja Alta is matured in American oak barrels for 18 months, while Garnacha from Pradejón in Rioja Oriental spends 16 months in barrels with untoasted heads to retain more fresh fruit. After blending and bottling the wine will spend six months in bottle prior to release. Intense and bright cherry red in colour with bluish tones. This wine delivers aromas of red sweet fruits with creamy vanilla and toast notes from the oak barrels used in the winemaking process. A silk-textured palate is structured by balanced acidity and polished tannins that lead to a long and harmonious finish.
