1998 Bodegas Montecillo Rioja Reserva
A brilliant ruby red wine with brick-red highlights, Montecillo Reserva is well structured and balanced, with plenty of body and length and an elegantly youthful bouquet. As befits a Reserva Rioja, it is made from tempranillo grapes which are harvested in the Rioja Alta area.
