Rioja ‘Edicion Limitada’, Montecillo
70% Tepranillo 30% Graciano
A fine example of modern Rioja from an estate that is really firing on all cylinders. Unlike most traditional Rioja’s, this is aged in mainly French oak barrels (as opposed to American oak); the finer grain on the oak retains, and emphasises the richness of the wines, so you get more concentrated, dark fruit flavours.
Full-bodied, smooth and decadent, this is a really impressive wine (lots of accolades…94pts Decanter etc). A good wine for steaks and BBQ as well as strong hard cheeses.
