Balanced, tasty, moreish and enveloping in the mouth, developing sweet, well-integrated tannins and a ripe, silky mouthfeel. Nice acidic palate with a long finish characterised by aromas from barrel ageing.
Founded in 1890 by the Artacho family and Rafael Carreras, Bodegas Riojanas is one of the oldest Spanish wineries of the D.O.Ca. Rioja and the one that enjoys greatest national and international renown.
Last year this legendary winery celebrated its 125th anniversary. The origin of the grapes that go into making Monte Real is what gives it its powerful personality and complexity. Produced in very limited quantities, this Reserva is grown on carefully selected vineyards belonging to one of the firm’s signature estates and has been aged exclusively in new American oak barrels for 30 months.
Pair with lamb chops, Rioja-style potato and chorizo stew, meat casseroles and mature cheeses.
