Why do we love this wine?

There’s something about Spanish wine that gets me all revved up. So when I read in Sommelier Magazine that “Finca Monteviejo must be counted among the best top wines in Spain”, a single drop of drool fell from my mouth to the floor and with 11 reviews awarding points ranging from 91 to 97, it’s pretty clear I’m not the only one reeling from this red-hot Rioja.

Pedro Ballesteros Torres, Master of Wine, called this “a top quality Rioja with real charisma” thanks to its impressive power and an explosion of flavour. Sarah Evans, Master of Wine, raved about “a wine that is full of life and energy” with “a glassful of dark fruits; blackberries and sour cherries coating the mouth.” 

This is, as Pierre Mansour put it, a smoky, full-bodied Rioja that has notable structure. Berry fruits and super jammy aromas are accompanied by wood nuances like cedar to add complexity. Sarah Evans described as “dense and resonant” and complimented the length as being “hugely impressive, taking you right through onto a lift of freshness at the end.”
