Founded in 1874 in La Rioja Alta, in the region of Fuenmayor, Bodegas Montecillo is the third oldest winery in Rioja. Its quality has lasted over 135 successful years in wine production. This Reserva is carefully fermented over 20 days at a controlled temperature. The wine then aged for 18 months in American oak barrels followed by 12 months of bottle age to allow the tannins to soften and the flavors to build. Wine Spectator designated this a Smart Buy and named it #25 on their Top 100 Wines of 2020. They scored it 92 points saying “This plump red offers mulled cherry and plum flavors, with notes of cinnamon, sandalwood and cedar. Light tannins are well-integrated, while orange peel acidity keeps this fresh and focused. Harmonious and generous. Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Drink now through 2028.” 750 ml
