D.O.Ca. Rioja (La Rioja)
Lan Reserva is a red wine from Rioja produced by Bodega LAN.
The name of the winery is composed of the initials of the provinces that were part of Rioja (Logroño, Alava and Navarra) in 1972, when the winery was created.
LAN Winery is located in Fuenmayor (La Rioja Alta).
Lan Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo (80%), Mazuelo (10%) and Grenache (10%). The grapes come from vineyards of 60 years of the Viña Lanciano farm. This farm, surrounded by the Ebro River, is one of the most spectacular in La Rioja.
For processing, fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 30-32C. The maceration lasts 3 weeks, during which frequent pumpings are made to achieve a good colour extraction.
Finally, Lan Reserva undergoes aging in French and American oak for at least 12 months and then 24 months in bottle.
