Bodegas Montecillo Gran Reserva


Grape Varieties: 92% Tempranillo, 8% Graciaco

A bold and elegantly complex classic crafted with the best selection of grapes.


Color: Ruby red with a noticeable rim. Excellent brightness and clarity.

Aroma & Palate: On its first contact with oxygen, it appears clean but reticent. Then, sweet notes of oak appear cinnamon, clove and candied fruits. Infinite nuances that change with the passage of time.

On the palate, it is subtle and pleasant, with great finesse upon entry and through the mid-palate. The tannins are extremely well polished and it has a serene acidity that maintains a long finish.


White meat, oven-baked fish. Cured meat and dark chocolate desserts.

Winemaking & Aging

This wine comes from plots of bush-trained vines on poor, sandy textured soils in the Rioja Alta area. The vines are an average of more than 35 years old and have low yields. They are harvested with great care and transported to the winery in small containers. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28oC, with prior bleeding-off and a long maceration of three weeks in contact with the skins. Ageing in French and American oak barrels (90%-10%) over 28 months, followed by subsequent bottle conditioning for at least 4 years until it is leaves the winery.
