Winemaker's Notes

Deep cherry color. Very expressive aromas of red and black ripped fruits, species and aromatic herbs with mineral notes and the elegance of the noble wood. Full-bodied and fleshy taste with a big quality structure and tannins, very well-balanced. An elegant and powerful wine.

Critical Acclaim

"Montecastro is a new estate founded in 2001. The 2005 Montecastro is 100% Tempranillo aged in barrique. Purple-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, toast, crushed stone, violets, black raspberry, and blackberry. This is followed by an opulent, full-flavored wine with gobs of spicy fruit, excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity, and 4-6 years of aging potential. It will be at its best between 2013 and 2025."
