Characteristics of Solar de Líbano Reserva
Solar de Líbano is a red wine from DO Rioja, made by the Castillo de Sajazarra winery, located in the municipality of Sajazarra, in the highest part of the Rioja Alta.
The winery is built beside a castle surrounded by gardens that, during the 60s and 70s, produced grapes. The winery, the castle, the gardens and vineyards constitute an "authentic chateau". The vineyards are grown at an altitude of 540-680 metres. Due to their proximity with the Cantabrian sea, about 85 kilometres this area has a more Atlantic influence. The low rainfall is about 600 litres per year, well distributed throughout the year and with snowfall during the winter.
Solar de Líbano 2009 is made from 98% Tempranillo and 2% Graciano and Garnacha. The wine spends 2 years in barrels of American oak, the first year in new oak and the second in oak four years old. After 3 months of aging in wooden vats, it goes into the bottle, where it remains for about 12 months before marketing.
This is a classic-cut, traditional Rioja.
