Tasting Notes

  • Bigarreau cherry red colour with a hint of garnet.
  • On the nose soft aromas of ripe red fruits, spices and toast, a very fruity and pleasant wine.
  • In the mouth it is fresh, well balanced, cheerful, light, fruity, with some tannins present but not disturbing and a long finish.


Elaboration

The grapes come from vineyards planted at an altitude of 550 metres at the foot of the Alce mountain in the municipality of Alfaro, in La Rioja baja. Its soils are mainly calcareous, clay-ferrous and with a lot of pebbles. The climate is Mediterranean, with influence of the Atlantic, with a great difference in temperature between winter and summer, which allows an excellent ripening of the grape. Harvesting is carried out manually, taking advantage of low solar intensity hours to keep the grapes fresh. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and go through a selection process before maceration at low temperature for 23 days to extract all the aromas.

La Montesa carries out the fermentation in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Once finished, it is transferred to French (90%) and American (10%) oak barrels where it is aged for 12 months. The 20% are new barrels, 30% barrels of a single wine, 25% of barrels of two wines and 25% of barrels of three wines.

Curiosity

La Montesa is a red wine from the D.O.Ca. La Rioja is made by Bodegas Palacios Remondo. Its technical director, Álvaro Palacios, is known for making one of the most coveted wines in Spain, L'Ermita, in his Priorat winery.
