Bodegas Montecillo is one of the oldest wineries in Rioja, established in 1870. Montecillo was preceded in Rioja by Marques de Murrieta and Marques de Riscal while Lopez de Heredia and La Rioja Alta followed in the next decade. A century and a half does provide regional perspective to capture the essence of Rioja. Having tasted Montecillo wines 40+ years old, they sure can impress. Chief winemaker and innovator, Mercedes García Rupérez, has spent over 10 years getting under the skin of Rioja. She and her team work tirelessly perfecting this classic Reserva, achieving #25 on Wine Spectator's prestigious Top 100 list in 2020.

This plump red offers mulled cherry and plum flavors, with notes of cinnamon, sandalwood and cedar. Light tannins are well-integrated, while orange peel acidity keeps this fresh and focused. Harmonious and generous. Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Garnacha. Drink now through 2028. 26,500 cases made, 15,900 cases imported.
