Características de Malaspiedras
Malaspiedras is a red wine produced in La Rioja by El Mozo Wines in Lanciego, Alava.
El Mozo Wines is a family winery with 40 years of history. The third generation Itxaso, Gorka and little Unai are currently in charge of the project. They all used to work in different sectors, and due to certain circumstances, they returned to their roots to contribute to the great legacy of the family vineyards.
The vineyards´ 9 hectares are spread out over the town of La Rioja Alavesa de Lanciego, divided into 18 different micro-plots. Some of the vines are more than 70 years old.
To make Malaspiedras, they use the oldest vines planted by their grandparents, just like the El Plano, Balondo, Vasconegro and El Anagorio plots. All of them are eco-friendly.
Malaspiedras ferments these plots separately in 1000 litre open plastic tanks with its own yeast. The wine is aged in 500 litre French, American and Hungarian oak barrels.
Malaspiedras is a red wine with excellent harmony, delicious fruits and a good depth thanks to the ageing process.
