A Ribera de Duero that is full of good luck
Style Montecastro 2019
Montecastro is a barrel-aged, single-variety Tempranillo red wine made by Montecastro Bodega y Viñedos in the D.O. Ribera de Duero (Castile and León).
Montecastro was set up by friends who joined forces in 2000 to make their dream come true: making quality wines in the heart of Ribera del Duero. The winery started out with the support of French winemaker Bertrand Erhard, which then peaked the interest of Peter Sisseck himself. So since 2012, the prestigious expert’s wine group, Hacienda Monasterio, has taken responsibility for the technical management of new productions. This includes a range of fresh and very elegant wines that are well-known around the world.
Montecastro comes from an exceptional vineyard with predominantly calcareous soils, located in one of the highest areas of Ribera del Duero, lying at 860-930 metres above sea level. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture, with no pesticides, and the stain yield is limited. This results in a concentrated grape with very good acidity.
Montecastro is made through spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts and a maceration of about 15 days in thermoregulated concrete tanks. It is then aged in French, American and Eastern European oak barrels for 17 months.
In collaboration with the team of the prestigious Peter Sisseck, Montecastro is only made in exceptional vintages. A Ribera de Duero red wine that has the support of prestigious figures like Julio Iglesias and Pedro J. Ramirez, and is also great value for money. Without doubt a wine that is full of good luck.
