- Sector: VINOS CON D.O.
Montenegro 2011 Reserva de Bodegas Félix Sanz, has just received one of the most important prizes at national level: the Bacchus de Oro. this championship was celebrated in Madrid between 10 and 13 March.
Montenegro was tasted with other 1500 wines from all over the world, and has been selected by a jury composed of more than a hundred professionals of the sector, including Masters of Wine and Masters of Sommelier of different origins.
It is a wine raised in American and French oak barrels with cherry-colored tones. With intense and elegant nose, it possesses memories to red fruits and brushstrokes of coffee, vanilla, cocoa and licorice. It is lively in mouth, fast, with tannins of great expression and with a long and persistent finish.
We are a small-medium sized cellar based in Rueda (Valladolid) under the umbrella of the Denominación de Origen Rueda, known for its fine white wines produced from Verdejo grapes. We have a production of around 400k bottles and mainly focused on Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc, the key grapes in the area. Our production is based on our 30has of vineyard, what we have is what we produce. We have been established in the market since 1934, being one of the first cellars joining the D.O Rueda when established in 1980, owning and being up for visiting one of the few old cellars that remain from XV century in Rueda and a small hotel where we offer the possibility to have a real experience for wine lovers. Our key brand is Viña Cimbrón (the brand comes after the name of our vineyard: it means in Spanish small slope) and we produce as well wines from Ribera del Duero under the Montenegro brand (Roble, Crianza and Reserva) made from Tempranillo grapes. With our range of wines, we try to look out for synergies in order to please the demand of those who look for completely different kind of wines, going our range from neat and fresh whites to red reserva´s with the right ageing and a lot of personality.
