Senor de Lesmos Rioja Reserva
All estate fruit, hand harvested, and carefully vinified with native yeasts, this is a hand sewn wine with the purity, texture and elegance to prove it. Produced from 85% Tempranillo and 15% Mazuelo, the Reserva is a barrel selection of wines that Angel feels can undergo longer aging in barrel and then in bottle. Aged a total of 27 months in barrels, then into concrete for more than a year, the Reserva also sees bottle aging until Angel deems it ready for release.
This wine ramps up the intensity of the Crianza, with more pungent fruit as well as a real spicy and wild quality. In a good vintage, this wine is likely to improve for quite a long time.
