CASTILLO MONTE LA REINA CRIANZA 2011
Variety: 100% tempranillo.
Heavy Red covered "episcopal" layer. Fragrant nose with aromas of raspberries and currants over smoky background, integrating the oxygen going in as the wine gets it. Serious and elegant, well balanced on the palate, with soft tannins, inviting tasting. For its craftsmanship and tannic, the wine may have precipitated the passage of time in the bottle.
Recommended: Ideal for red meats, sausages and cheeses.
