Producer: Bodegas Montecillo

Now owned by the famous Osborne family company, a decision was taken 10 years ago to put the winery back on the map and key to this was the appointment of brilliant winemaker Mercedes Garcia Rupérez. High on Mercedes’ list of priorities was to eradicate as quickly as possible the dreaded Brett (Brettanomyces), a strain of wild yeast that produces large amounts of acetic acid and can give wines a distinctly ‘not right’ aroma.

For some, this taint is part of the charm of ‘old school’ Rioja, and it is still remarkably common, but it’s not for us. Every single one of the 20,000 barrels in the underground cellars of Montecillo was replaced. Bravo!

A vibrant, thoroughly fresh nose full of ripe red fruits with hints of warm patisserie and a subtle touch of anise, the oak is sublimely judged. Lively on the palate too with masses of juicy dark fruit character, polished tannins and a cracking finish with nods to coconut, creamy toffee and vanilla pod to complement the generous fruit.

Here's a wine that balances tradition with modernity to perfection.
