Lanzaga is the backbone of our project, the identity, the purest expression of our work in Lanciego. Made only from a selection of the best grapes from our own organic vineyards, Lanzaga brings together all the elements of our way of work; respect of the place, field blend, bush pruning, organic viticulture, always keeping a limited production of human size. The result is a rich and complex expression of the village of Lanciego; a Rioja wine with a true sense of place; a serious and sophisticated wine that ages wonderfully.
Region: Rioja Alavesa
Village: Lanciego de Álava
Places: Atalaya, Majadales, Arroyo la Losa, Pasocastillo, Soto
Varieties: Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha
Viticulture: Made only from a selection of the best grapes from some of our 35 plots of organic vineyards. Bush pruning. Hand harvested.
Elaboration and aging: Native yeasts. 14 months in foudres of 1500-2500L and 225L barrels. Soils: Located at an altitude of 450 to 650 meters. We find two types of soils, both of continental origin from the tertiary era. Some are developed on sandstone plateaus and are shallow, flat, stony, limy and of silty texture. The others are found on gentle slopes on marls and are moderately deep, less stony, limy and of a very fine texture.
