The Rioja flagship Altos de Lanzaga comes from one of the most exceptional vineyards in Lanciego. The goal is to vindicate the subtlety that a great Rioja must possess.
The fruit comes from about 10 biodynamically farmed acres of Tempranillo vineyards more than 70 years old. The wine is crushed and extracted in order to protect wine's finesse. Fermentation is done in large, open wooden vats, and aging is in a combination of large oak casks and smaller barriques for 18 months, with each cask studied individually and dried for a lengthy period corresponding to its specific characteristics.
