Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from 100% Tempranillo grapes, which are hand harvested from the Montebuena vineyard.

Brilliant deep ruby red color, fruity aromas. Montebuena Red has a spicy vanilla bouquet and is smooth and fruity in the mouth with some well-integrated secondary nuances, full-flavored and a persistent pleasant finish.

About Montebuena:

Montebuena is produced by Bodegas Burgo Viejo that were founded in 1987 by six families of farmers. Burgo Viejo's main asset has always been the exquisite winemaking process of grapes collected from its own vineyards throughout the years, back to the times when they were just a wine cellar selling in bulk (they started as a cooperative in the 1950's). Young Gorka Etxebarria is the leading winemaker and has been working with Burgo Viejo since December 2003.
