Lan Vina Lanciano Reserva D.O.Ca. Rioja
Grassiano • Masuelo
Region: Rioja (subzones Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa).
Grape varieties: 85% Tempranillo, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo. Hand harvested from vines planted over 30 years ago in our Viña Lanciano vineyard.
Characteristic: 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. 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.
Food Pairing: Grilled red meat, lamb, stews, smoked and spicy dishes, meat carpaccios, cured cheeses.
