Bodegas Montecillo Crianza 2010
Bodegas Montecillo selects the finest grapes from Rioja for this crianza. Aged more than one year in handcrafted oak barrels and one year in bottle, this wine has intense fruit aromas and a garnet-red color. Food friendly, enjoy it with meat dishes or mild cheeses. Serve at 64 degrees F. In 1874, Bodegas Montecillo (part of Grupo Osborne) was founded by Celestino Navajas in La Rioja Alta. It is the third oldest winery in the Rioja and with the greatest tradition in the making of wines protected by this Denominacion de Origen. More than 130 years after it was founded, Bodegas Montecillo strictly adheres to its prime objective: to produce natural and full red wines with personality by carefully selecting the raw material, the grape, and by allowing its wines to naturally age and mature in their bottles. This results in a highly consistent level of quality year after year. Bodegas Montecillo only makes top-of-the-range wines, all of which receive the seal of guarantee from the Consejo Regulador de la Denominacion de Origen Calificada Rioja (Rioja DOC Control Board): Montecillo Crianza, Montecillo Reserva, Montecillo Gran Reserva, and Montecillo Gran Reserva Seleccion Especial.
