inca Montico is a white wine made from 100% verdejo grapes from an old vineyard situated in the Montico estate within the borders of Rueda.
This wine has a modern style which offers varietal complexity and good body and finesse. It is a wine to enjoy fairly young, but laying down for a few years will bring it additional complexity and interest which is sure to surprise you.
With the 2018 vintage Finca Montico became one of a collection of 100% organic wines from Marqu?s de Riscal, from our ecological bodega in the D.O. Rueda, as part of our commitment to make our wines with the minimum possible intervention.
At the start of the 1970s, Vinos de los Herederos del Marqu?s de Riscal decided to add a white wine to its product range. After two years? trials, the Rueda region was the one chosen to make it.
Faithful to its pioneering spirit, Marqu?s de Riscal created a new, young, fresh and fruity white wine in a region more famous for its sherry-style amontillados and olorosos. Other bodegas followed us, and the appellation of the D.O Rueda was set up in 1980. In order to achieve the best white wine in the region, it is important to highlight that Marqu?s de Riscal was advised by winemakers from Petaluma (Australia).
The D.O. Rueda is one of the few European winemaking districts specialized in making white wines and in the protection and development of its indigenous variety, Verdejo.
