are ear-marked for special treatment by legendary Winemaker Maria Martinez. They are set
aside for longer maturation both in barrel and in bottle, before they are allowed to
emerge, like butterflies from the chrysalis, as ESPECIAL Gran Reservas. This 1981 is just
such a wine, and was only released for drinking in 2005, after nearly a quarter of a century
reaching its maximum potential, deep in the underground cellars, under Maria's watchful eye
and palate. No where else in the wine world pursues this relentless search for excellence,
with its enormous commitment of time, money and expertise. Maria considers her 1981
Especial as the finest wine created in her 35 years wine making at Bodegas Montecillo.
It IS very ESPECIAL.
