Alvaro Palacios is now more well known for his wineries in Priorat and Bierzo, but he is also technical director of his families winery in Rioja. He took over the winery along with his sister Chelo when their father passed and helped mondernise the winery while keeping it in its original location, practically in the centre of the city of Alfaro in eastern Rioja.
'La Montesa' is based around organically grown Garnacha grapes. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel, then aged in a combination of french and american oak of various sizes. It has a vibrant freshness and juicy fruit, but with a spicy smokiness and vanilla sweetness from the oak influence. A wine that will drink now, but continue to develop over the next few years in the bottle.
