Montecillo Gran Reserva
About Bodegas Montecillo
Founded in 1874, we are the oldest winery of Fuenmayor, and the third oldest of La Rioja. That is a wine history of 140+ years. Bodegas Montecillo maintains its solid philosophy of respect towards the vineyard, the selection of the best grape, ageing in high quality oak barrels and refining in the tranquility of its impressing cellars, where bottles lay that are dated back to 1926, the same year that Rioja received the indication of a protected ``Designation of Origin``. The Monteclillo Gran Reserva offers a clean and bright color. Intense ruby-red with a good color density. On the nose, it is strongly scented with ripe fruit. Complex and elegant. A satin texture with fine tannins and a flavor of leather. Refined with a long finish.
