Characteristics of Montecastro

Montecastro is a red wine from the D.O. Ribera del Duero made by Montecastro Bodegas y Viñedos.
This wine is a Tempranillo (100%) single-varietal. The wine is made in concrete deposits and ages in barrels, half new and half one-wine-old, for 17 months.
This wine is only made when the harvest conditions are right. If they're not, then the grapes are used to make Alcontre, a lighter wine with a shorter ageing than Montecastro.
Montescastro is both classic and modern. Find all the flavours and aromas of the Ribera del Duero combined in this wine.

Tasting notes Montecastro

Montecastro 2016 is a mature red wine with a complex nose of red fruit, notes of undergrowth and delicious hints of minerality and wood. On the palate it is meaty, voluminous and very fruity. It reveals fine tannins as well as an integrated acidity that provides freshness. The finish is lively, noble and persistent.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
Once again, Montecastro 2014 shows all the potential of this wine. Distinguished aromas of ripe red fruit on the nose, with toasted and spicy notes that add complexity. In the mouth, it is round and elegant.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
Sight A deep cherry colour, medium-high robe. Slow falling, glyceric tears show on the glass. Nose Interesting and very intense aromas. Red and black fruit, toasted notes, floral and vegetal notes. Taste Fresh on the palate with toasted notes, cocoa and vanilla. Enwrapping, powerful and elegant.

    Montecastro is a relatively new winery. The idea of it emerged in 2000 thanks to some friends, among them, Julio Iglesias and Pedro J. Ramírez, who became partners to make their dreams come true: to plant vineyards in the hear of Ribera del Duero, to build a winery with the latest technology, and to make quality wines. The group was joined by French oenologist Bertrand Erhard, who perfectly understood the philosophy of the project. In 2002, they planted 27 hectares of vineyards in five different sites, with the aim of making country wine or ‘vino de la tierra’ from start to finish, at the same time as they built the winery, with the launch of their first vintage in 2002.
