Reviews and Ratings

Monticello 2010 Gran Reserva is elegant and fragrant with dark cherry, plum, black raspberry and spicy aromas on the nose. Silky and savoury on the palate this full-bodied Rioja is produced from 100% Tempranillo. Tannins are ripe with a long, satisfying finish. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
