VIÑA LANCIANO, BEAUTIFUL IN BLOOM

VIÑA LANCIANO, BEAUTIFUL IN BLOOM

31 May, 2019 By Bodegas LAN

The leaves have started to appear, and the moment that the vines will flower is getting ever nearer. At the start, the plant will nourish itself from its own reserves, to then move into a period of vigorous growth. Flowering usually occurs in our vineyard towards the end of May or in early June. It is one of the most important moments in the growth cycle, as it will determine the amount of grapes that there are on each bunch and the size of the harvest. It all depends on the temperature; it needs to remain a steady 15 – 20 degrees.

LAN AND OAK. A journey through winemaking

LAN AND OAK. A journey through winemaking

18 March, 2019 By Bodegas LAN

In LAN we seek to preserve the natural expression of fruit from the outset. The barrels play a fundamental role in terms of preserving and adding more complex nuances to our wines over time. Therefore, we are very stringent in selecting the oak that will accompany our wines on their ageing journey.

 

Malolactic fermentation in barrel

Our estate wines – Viña Lanciano, LAN A Mano and Culmen- first come into contact with oak when they undergo malolactic fermentation in new barrels. This second fermentation (in which the malic acid is converted into lactic acid,) helps shape the personality of our wines, enhancing its qualities, heightening its characteristic varietal aromas and intense colour, softening it and making it more pleasant and creamy on the palate.
