D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Viña Lanciano Reserva is a red wine from Rioja produced by the Lan winery. It is a wine blend made up of the Tempranillo (80%) and Mazuelo (20%) varieties.
The harvest is done manually on the Viña Lanciano estate, located near a bend in the river Ebro and owned by the same winery. Vines are more than 30 years old. Upon arriving at the winery, the grapes are selected from sorting tables.
Fermentation occurs in small conical stainless steel tanks. There is a long maceration and continuous pumping to achieve adequate colour removal.
The wine is aged for 6 months in oak barrels from the Russian Caucasus and 12 months in French oak barrels from Allier. Finally, it is refined in bottle for a period of 18 months.
The Lan winery's name derives from the initials of Logroño, Alava and Navarra, the three provinces of the DO La Rioja. The winery specializes in wines made from Tempranillo.
