Winemaker Notes

The 2012 Bodegas Montecillo Rioja Reserva is a bright cherry red color, with a very noticeable rim. On the nose, it shows great balance, with very ripe fruit appearing at rst, followed by hints of freshness and noble oak. Sweet, aniseed-like notes appear in the background. Intense and long lasting. Elegant, lively and very pleasant on the palate. Balanced acidity and well-polished tannins. Once again there is a lot of fruit and a very smooth mouth feel. Notes of very high quality oak on the finish.

This wine is the perfect accompaniment to meat dishes, charcuterie, mature cheeses and slow-cooked stews.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Familiar Rioja aromas of creamy oak, wood smoke, leather and earthy berry fruits are encouraging and lead to a solid palate with forgiving intensity. Blackberry, cassis and vanilla aromas are lasting on a finish that's reaching maturity.

Bodegas Montecillo, Spain
Bodegas Montecillo Winery Image

Bodegas Montecillo was founded by Celestino Navajas in 1874 in the town of Fuenmayor in Spain's Rioja Alta region, the major and most traditional winemaking region in Spain. Thanks to the expertise that his son Alejandro acquired in France, the bodega was one of the first to adapt Bordeaux winemaking techniques to Spanish grapes, earning the reputation and prestige that it still enjoys today.

In 1973, Bodegas Montecillo was acquired by Osborne y Cía. Osborne has continued the unique quality and traditions of the winery, including aging the wines exclusively in French oak barrels, which are handmade at the winery's own cooperage, and the use of 100% Tempranillo grapes for its red wines. Montecillo also boasts one of the most well-known female winemakers in Spain, Maria Martinez Sierra, who consistently produces fine wines year after year.

Rioja

Tempranillo

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
