Bodega Lanzaga LZ Rioja 2019


Rewarding Rioja here from the master, Telmo Rodriguez.

LZ is a tribute to the village grape growers of the 1920's. A wine fermented in small concrete tanks with selected grapes from our organic vineyards in the village of Lanziego. With LZ, we want to keep alive that memory of taste. Winery

Located at an altitude of 500 to 700 meters. We find two types of soils, both of continental origin from the tertiary era. Some are developed on sandstone plateaus and are shallow, flat, stony, limy and of silty texture. The others are found on slopes on marls and are moderately deep, with gentle slopes, less stony, limy and of a very fine texture.

James Suckling writes " Very pretty and aromatic with plum and orange peel with floral undertones. Medium to full body, with very fine tannins and a beautiful, fine-grained finish. Drinkable now, but a year or two will real show it off. From organically grown grapes." 94/100
