Produced by Bodegas Lan, the red wine Lan D-12 homages an old La Rioja tradition. In the past, the cellar masters of the region used to keep the best wines for the personal consumption of the winemaking and vineyard crew. At Bodegas Lan, the top quality wines were vinified in Depósito nª12 (diposit 12), hence the name of this Spanish red wine.
Made solely from Tempranillo, this red wine from La Rioja is sourced from three plots of vines, aged 30 to 45, with clay-limestone soils. They are situated in the villages of Vinaspre, El Cortijo and San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
The 2019 vintage was a hot one with little rainfall. The perfectly ripen, healthy grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks under 25ºC, after which the lees were periodically stirred to enhance colour extraction and increase the creaminess of the wine.
After completing the malo, the red wine Lan D-12 2019 was aged for 12 months in new French and American oak barrels.
Pair this red wine from La Rioja with smoked foods, spicy dishes, cold cuts, BBQ'd meat and aged cheese.
The red wine Lan D-12 is deep ruby with some reddish reflections.
Quite rich, this varietal Tempranillo brings aromas of cinnamon, blueberry pie and red cherries, with hints of cocoa, tobacco, toffee and balsam.
This wine of de Bodegas Lan has grip and freshness, with abundant dusty tannins, an excellent acidity and loads of berries and spices. Long aftertaste of herbs and ripe fruit.
