In 1874, Bodegas Montecillo was founded by Celestino Navajas in La Rioja Alta. It is therefore one of the longest established wineries 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.

Modest but classy raspberry, plum and oak spice aromas get this gran reserva going in the right direction. A full-bodied palate reveals edgy tannins, while this tastes lightly toasted and blackened, with plum and berry fruit at the foundation of a long, steady finish. Drink now through 2022.?MICHAEL SCHACHNER
