Montecillo Crianza

Grape Variety:

93% Tempranillo 7% Graciano

ELABORATION:

Open description

Controlled alcoholic fermentation on a temperature of 24ºC, in contact with the skin for 12 days. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation in underground storage tanks, and afterwards racked in semi-new American oak barrels of the highest quality for 18 months. The wine afterwards stays in bottle for 6 months before leaving the winery.

TASTING NOTES:

COLOUR: Of intense cherry-red colour and medium-high robe, very clean and vivid which indicates its youth. AROMA AND TASTE: On the nose, it is very potent, fruity, sweet, on a very clean background of American wood with coconut and tones of blackberry in the finish and a touch of eucalyptus which makes it more profound and complex. In the mouth very widely ranged and expressive, it has perfectly integrated the combination of stewed fruit compote with wood. A long aftertaste where wood of an excellent quality predominantly appears and wraps around the ripe, outspoken and explosive fruit.
