Montecito 2018

A fresh, fruity red with raspberries and cherries, as well as some wood, tiny hint of vanilla. Medium body with firm, racy tannins and a fresh finish.

James Suckling

Montecito is a new wine from Vinos Del Viento and is the evolution of Garnacha de Montaña. The vineyards are situated at the base of the Moncayo mountain and the Sistema Ibérico mountain range and that, coupled with the fact that winegrower Michael Cooper was born and raised in Montecito, made the name seem like a perfect fit. This is actually a ‘Crianza’ but we prefer not to label it as such. It has been matured in French oak (223L and 500L) for 18 months and is fine, elegant and expressive.
