2016 Bodegas Palacios Remondo La Montesa Rioja DOCa

Spain | Rioja Red Blend
"Stunning mountain freshness with delicate floral notes and mineral energy, this is a standout 2016 Rioja that shows what was possible in this vintage. Great energy on the breathtakingly bright finish. Enormously food-flexible. Drink or hold."

"I returned to the 2016 La Montesa once it had been in bottle for almost eight months. It has all the rosemary, thyme and aromatic plants in the Monte Yerga in Alfaro. It has a note of incense. It's super juicy Garnacha with citrus freshness. It's incredible to have this quality at this price and almost unbelievable that they produced 690,000 bottles of it. A steal!"

Practicing Organic
"Palacios is deeply committed to organic viticulture and natural winemaking practices, such as use of organic fertilizers in the stone-covered, clay soils. All of the wines are unfiltered and clarified only with egg whites. No exogenous yeasts or commercial compounds are added to the wines, and sulfites are kept to minimum levels."
