Characteristics of La Montesa

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Palacios Remondo. The technical director, Alvaro Palacios, is known for producing one of the most coveted wines from Spain, L'Ermita, in his Priorat winery.

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a blend of typical varieties of La Rioja: Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo.

The grapes come from vineyards planted at an altitude of 550 metres, at the foot of Mount Yerga, in the municipality of Alfaro, in lower Rioja.

The soils are mainly limestone and clay with many stones. The climate is Mediterranean with Atlantic influences, with a large temperature difference between winter and summer, allowing an excellent ripening of the grapes.

Harvesting is done manually, using periods of little sunlight to keep the grapes fresh. Once in the winery, the grapes are destemmed and go through a selection process before maceration at low temperature for 23 days to extract all the aromas.

Palacios Remondo La Montesa is fermented in stainless steel tanks for three weeks. Once, it has passed through French oak barrels (90%) and American oak barrels, (10%) it is aged for 12 months. 20% are new barrels, 30% barrels have contained one wine previously, 25% have contained 2 wines and 25% have contained 3 wines.
