Lan a Mano 2014

D.O.C. Denomination of Origin Rioja Red wine 13,5% 2014
28.00 Bottle 75 cl Tax incl.

GRAPE VARIETIES:
80% Tempranillo, 8% Mazuelo and 12% Graciano grapes hand-harvested from 35 and 40 year-old vines in the “Viña Lanciano” estate. The grapes were hand selected in two sorting tables so that only those grains in perfect sanitary and ripeness conditions are allowed into the next phase of vinification.

WINEMAKING:
Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. During this process, the lees were stirred weekly to ensure maximum colour and tannin extraction as well as a fuller mouthfeel.

AGEING:
7 months in new French oak barriques and a further 6 months in new Russian oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered and unclarified to maintain all the subtle aroma and flavors, albeit producing natural sedimentation that may be found inside the bottle.

TASTING NOTES:
Intense garnet colour with bright red hues. Complex yet attractive nose of ripe fruit (plums, blackberry, and redcurrant), hints of sweet spice (clove, cinnamon), layers of coffee, cigar-box and the earthiness and minerality characteristic of all the wines made with the grapes sourced from the “Viña Lanciano” estate.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: 
Ideal on its own. Combine with grilled meats, spicy dishes and aged cheese.
