Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Montecillo Reserva, aged in oak for at least 3 years, has light notes of yeasty/earthy cherry, dark chocolate and oak. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity to integrated wine; with forward acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a medium finish. It is a food friendly wine; drink now - 2016. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 87-88 pts. Tasted Jan/14.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Montecillo Reserva Tempranillo is a deep cherry red wine with ruby tones. Clean & brilliant, the bouquet is elegant and complex with aromas of balck fruit and fennel. The palate is well-balanced, intense and flavourful. Distinct flavours of red and black fruit stand out over a delicate framework of oak followed by a long and persistent finish.

Montecillo Reserva Tempranillo est un vin de couleur rouge cerise foncée avec des tons rubis. Net et brillant, son bouquet est élégant et complexe avec des arômes de fruits noirs et de fenouil. Son palais est bien équilibré, intense et savoureux.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
