Red Wine Palacios Remondo La Montesa 2017
Availability: In stock
The wine Palacios Remondo La Montesa is made mostly from Grenache, complemented with some Tempranillo, both coming from low-yielding vines.The Bodegas Palacios Remondo winery owns about 100 hectares of vineyards spread out across some of the best terroirs in La Rioja.
The soils have extremely low levels of organic matter and are covered of pebble stones of alluvial origin, a composition which is quite similar to that of the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape soils.
Harvested at dusk, the grapes were meticulously selected, destemmed and cold-soaked to foster the extraction of colour and aromas. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, after which the wine was transferred into 1st, 2nd and 3rd 225-litre French (85%) and American (15%) oak barrels, where it was aged for a period of 12 months.
It is worth mentioning that this is the first certified organic vintage of La Montesa from La Rioja.
We suggest that you decant Palacios Remondo La Montesa 2017 30 minutes before you drink it.
The red wine Palacios Remondo La Montsesa has a bright, intense, medium-high ruby-coloured robe with a garnet rim.
This Crianza red wine has an exotic, intense aromatic profile. Notes of ripe cherries, strawberries, pomegranates, along with hints of citrus and delicate fragrances of flowers. This wine by Palacios Remondo also carries a rich bouquet of Eastern spices and a dash of balsam.
The wine enters the palate smoothly, showing a velvety texture and displaying irresistible flavours of ripe red fruit, notions of spices and an excellent acidity. Ripe, yummy tannins and a long, smoky finish. La Montesa Palacios Remondo is masterly crafted.
