About Bodegas Montecillo 2017 Rioja, Crianza
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 Crianza is carefully fermented over 20 days at controlled temperature. The wine then aged in American oak barrels.
Last vintage was Wine Enthusiast Magazine's #1 Best Buy of 2020! This 2017 is an extremely worthy successor. 85% Tempranillo and 15% Garnacha. It shows ripe red cherry and plum notes along with hints of coconut and spice. Silky on the palate and a long finish with fruit notes lingering. Stunning Value!
