Palacios Remondo La Montesa 2014Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Palacios Remondo. The technical director, Alvaro Palacios, is known for producing one of the most coveted wines from Spain, L'Ermita, in his Priorat winery. Palacios Remondo La Montesa is a blend of typical varieties of La Rioja: Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mazuelo.
