Viña Lanciano, the soul of LAN
Named after the vineyard it comes from, Viña Lanciano captures the essence of the land and the river around it.
85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. Hand harvested from vines planted over 30 years ago in our Viña Lanciano vineyard. The grapes were hand allocated in our selection tables, where only those grains in perfect sanitary and ripeness conditions are allowed into the next phase of vinification.
Fermented in small stainless steel tanks with long post-fermentative macerations and over-pumping the must daily to achieve better colour extraction. Malolactic fermentation in small (225 l.) French oak barriques sourced from the Tronçais forests.
The wine is aged for a total of 36 months. 18 months in oak (combines 12 months in French oak –Tronçais- and 6 months in Russian oak –Caucasus- barrels) and 18 months of rounding in the bottle in our cellar prior to release.
WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES:
Bright crimson with purple hues. Elegant aromas of ripe red and black fruits, liquorice, sweet spice and pastries combined with the minerality characteristic of all the wines from the Viña Lanciano estate. The bouquet is girdled with hints of forest shrub (rockrose) and other balsamic aromas (mint, fennel…). Its attack is silky and elegant, showcasing fruit again on the palate as well as sweet and finely integrated tannins. Very persistent, its finish is pleasant and savory. A remarkable wine from Rioja able to boast of the region’s characteristic elegance and finesse.
Grilled red meat, lamb, stews, smoked and spicy dishes, meat carpaccios, cured cheeses.
Serve at 16º – 18º C (60º – 64º F).
Available in 75 and 150 cl.
