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.
"The 2008 Reserva has a lot more going on. Both nose and palate are deeper than the 2009 Crianza, with ripe fruit, floral aromas and hints of the telltale notes of the properly aged traditional Rioja: leather, incense, tea leaves and smoke. The palate is balanced, with good acidity. This is a great commercial Rioja at a very attractive price. Drink 2014-2017."
