LAN Crianza

Blend                         100% Tempranillo

Region                       DO Rioja, Spain

Winery                      The name LAN derives from the initials of the three provinces part of the DO Rioja: Logroño, Alava, Navarra.

Vineyard                   The vines, 30-to-60-years-old, are settled in clayey, pebbly soil and they have very low yields. Gobelet training in the whole vineyard allows us to conduct the most selective harvest in order to obtain the highest quality fruit.

Vinification               Fermentation of destemmed grapes in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature between 28 – 30 ºC. Maceration for 15 days with continuous pumping over in order to achieve a good extraction of color from the cap of skins.

Ageing                       Aged for 12 months in combined oak barrels. The staves are from American oak and the two tops are from French oak. Then followed by several months in the bottle.
