2008 Bodegas y Vinedos Montecastro

Grapes Tinto Fino
Colour Red
Origin Spain, Ribera del Duero
ABV 13.5%

Gone is the flashy, heavy-weight bottle and now looking very smart in a more traditional Bordeaux shape - the 2008 Montecastro has also shed some of its excess bulk in style. Pure Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) - delicious dark fruit and some leathery wood-spice. Rich blackberry and bright cherry notes make this a hugely appealing and very sophisticated wine. L&S (May 2013)

Dark purple. Sweet oak on the nose, but not the rioja type. Gentle and well balanced. Very juicy fruit. A charmer. 2013-2018 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Dec 2013)

Smoke and toast notes frame black cherry and blackberry flavors in this firm red. Lively acidity and light, firm tannins impart structure, leading to a smoky, floral finish. Drink now through 2015 Rating: 89 The Wine Spectator, (Nov 2013)

(70% French and 30% American oak): Dark ruby. Fresh cherry and blackberry on the nose and in the mouth. Juicy and precise, with slow-building spiciness and a long, seamless finish. This wine drinks very well right now. Rating: 90 Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Nov 2013)

Bodegas y Vinedos Montecastro

Montecastro is a new estate in Ribera del Duero founded in 2002. The owners have gone to great lengths to do everything right and it shows in the wine. They own five separate vineyard parcels in the heart of the region, with vines ranging from 6 to 100 years of age. Under the supervision of a young French trained oenologist, Jean Francois Hebrard, the wine has already reached some international acclaim, and they are well on the way to making it one of Spain's top wines.
