Rioja Edición Limitada 2015                  

Montecillo

A wine that showcases terrifically the enormas impact that winemaker Mercedes Garcia Ruperez has made. Her huge improvements in both vineyard and cellar and these are now textbook examples of traditional style Rioja made with modern techniques. This Edicion Limitada is aged a total of 28 months in a combination of mixed (French staves interspersed with American) and French oak barrels followed by a further 18 months in bottle before release: aromatic and expressive, with earthy forest fruits, balsamic and mineral notes and some spicy oak finishing with fine, elegant tannins.
