Winemaker's Notes

Telmo's wines come from a combination of estate vineyards (and in the case of Altos de Lanzaga, exclusively estate vineyards), and those of growers in the area who cultivate under Telmo's supervision. With LZ, the quality of the Telmo Rodriguez Rioja vineyards shines through the wine's fresh fruit expression.

Critical Acclaim

"With the 2012 L.Z. they try to reproduce the Rioja wines from the 1920s, where the grapes were fermented and aged in concrete, without any make-up, showing very clean and fruity, with notes of red licorice and flowers and a fresh, polished palate creating a wine of pleasure, pure and honest. A straightforward, humble wine, true to its origins that is a real pleasure to drink. "
