Montecillo Crianza 2005

Member Review by drdebs:

My favorite entry-level Spanish Tempranillo. This is for traditionalists, who want their Tempranillo to have the earthy, herbal, leathery loveliness of the grape. Aromas of leather, earth, and herbs with black cherry taking a back seat. Juicy cherry palate, medium-bodied in the mid-palate, with a lovely long aftertaste. For $12? Impossible to beat, in my opinion.

Only 9.99 at Astor Wines in NYC, a fantastic example of tempranillo that I always recommend to friends who aren't familiar with this grape. Earthy, spicy and full of dark cherry.

Nose is full of violets with great fruit, smokey texture with ambiance of old world lingering into chocolate on the palate to finish. Hint of tobacco. Great Cassis and hints of blueberries with oddles of vanilla. I would pair this wine with lamb and buffalo.

Easy to drink. It has a light smokey wood flavor but tastes a little like cheap wine. I ate corn beef with it, they paired very well together.

    Drank with a Lemon Pepper Chicken Alfredo that I had made. It was very smooth and I enjoyed it.

    This may admit my lack of wine sophistication (I like to think of this is a lack of wine snobbery), but I loved this wine, partly because of the price. It was a deep full flavor, which is what I adore in wine. Served it with a pasta dish flavored with prosciutto, sage and parmesan.

    Montecillo Crianza 2005: Ein verführerisches Bukett von reifen Beeren und saftigen Kirschen prägen diesen eleganten und klassischen Rioja Crianza. Am Gaumen präsentiert er sich cremig, weich und trocken. Gut eingebundene Tannine geben einen intensiven und vollen Abgang. Der Wein sollte eine Stunde vorher belüftet werden. Er passt excellent zu mariniertem, würzigem Fleisch und zu milden Käsesorten.Weingut: MontecilloRegion: RiojaRebsorte: TempranilloInhalt: 0.75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: fünf bis sieben Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Rotwein > Spanien > Rioja
