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:Notes of bright red berries, white flowers followed by a touch of apricot. A pleasing soft acidity is complimented by a creaminess that lends weight and complexity to the finish.
Long Tasting Note:This rosé is a blend of Tempranillo Tinto and Tempranillo Blanco grapes grown in the Rioja Alta zone where cooler, wetter conditions allow grapes to retain their freshness. Tempranillo undergoes cold maceration for six hours to obtain a delicate pink hue and is subsequently blended with Tempranillo Blanco prior to fermentation. The final blend spends two months in contact with the lees prior to bottling. A vivid pale pink with lilac inflections. Notes of bright red berries, white flowers followed by a touch of apricot. A pleasing soft acidity is complimented by a creaminess that lends weight and complexity to the finish.
