Rioja Crianza Extremo Ecologico Bodegas Lan 2017

£17.50

In stock

From an organically farmed plot of Tempranillo within the famed Viña Lanciano vineyard – a prime site within Rioja Alta, located on a meander of the River Ebro. This Rioja is bursting with bright aromas of ripe strawberries, redcurrants and cherries coupled with subtle spicy notes of vanilla and smoky hints from 14 months in new French oak. On the palate, the wine is full bodied with silky tannins, perfectly balanced flavours of red fruits and spice and a lingering finish.

Founded in 1972, Bodegas LAN lies in the heart of Rioja Alta and boasts one of the most spectacular single-vineyard sites in the region: Viña Lanciano. The name LAN comes from the initials of the three provinces of the Rioja Designation of Origin: Logroño, Álava and Navarra. María Barúa has been the head winemaker and technical director since 2002, and leads a young, enthusiastic team.

Now this is a bit off piste, but next time you are looking for a wine to go with curry choose this to go with Rogan Josh, and to confuse you further – try Emmental cheese!
