2016 Palacios Remondo Rioja La Montesa

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


Tasting Notes:

Álvaro couldn't help but offer a barrel sample of the 2016 La Montesa, which will be bottled in a couple of months, because it's one of his favorite vintages ever. He's been fine-tuning the wine since he returned, and he believes he has achieved his objective with this 2016, which is elegant and at the same time concentrated, with a little more of everything—acidity, extract and tannins, all in harmony. A round wine to drink and enjoy and one that expresses the nature around the vineyards. For the future, his next goal is to add small quantities of the old varieties existing in the old vineyards, Tinto Velasco, Monastrell, Bobal, Graciano de Alfaro... There will be 690,000 bottles of this beauty, which is organically farmed and will carry the certificate starting in 2017. Bravo!

description Producer information Professional reviews

This is a winery that from Alfaro, in the eastern Mediterranean Rioja, provides one of the last foothills of the Iberian, the rugged and saw fresh Yerga. In his hillside colluvium formed by sedimentation of the peaks, it extends La Montesa, Grenache vineyard par excellence. Rootedness and winemaking tradition on its soil clay and calcium carbonate, which also emerge even boulders of volcanic origin.
