Bodegas LAN “Vina Lanciano'' Single Vineyard Rioja Reserva 2012 - Rioja, SP
Varietals: 90% Tempranillo, 8% Graciano, and 2% Mazuelo
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 Vina 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.
Viña Lanciano is the name of this spectacular setting, 72 hectares embraced by a curve of the River Ebro, on the natural border between the Rioja Alta and the Rioja Alavesa. A privileged location, sheltered by the Cantabria Mountains, which creates a different microclimate in each of its 22 parcels, where we respect the logical balance of nature to the maximum through sustainable vine growing.
