88 The Wine Enthusiast Dusty aromas of citrus rinds are a touch prickly but overall rank as good and clean. A plump palate with medium body retains its freshness prior to melon and orange flavors that hold together on the finish.

87 View from the Cellar The 2017 Garnacha Rosato from Legado del Moncayo is sealed under screwcap, but the wine is still very fresh and vibrant at this stage in its evolution. The pretty nose wafts from the glass in a blend of strawberries, melon, salty spice tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, juicy and pretty soft in terms of acidity, with a good core, nice focus and balance and a long, easy-going and tasty finish. This is not complex, but if offers up good, uncomplicated drinking. 2018-2020.

91 International Wine Review Ripe strawberry nose. Crisp and dry on the attack, the Legado del Moncayo offers a nice bright focus of concentrated red berries and stone fruit on the palate along with excellent acidity and freshness. Finishes crisply with good persistence.
