Lan Reserva 2010Bodegas LAN
Deep garnet red with a ruby rim. On the nose, notes of very ripe fruit – plum, figs and fruit compote – stand out. All enveloped in notes of vanilla, caramel, black pepper and smoke. A well-structured wine, with ripe, sweet tannins on the palate. It has a long life ahead of it.
94% Tempranillo 6% Mazuelo.

|TYPE OF WINE|
The name “LAN” is an acronym for the three provinces that make up Rioja, Logroño, Alava, and Navarra. LAN having been founded in 1972 produces some of the most consistent, value-driven examples of Rioja on the market, and is also is an established leader on the premium side.
LAN’s iconic 72 hectare Viña Lanciano vineyard sits on a breathtaking natural meander along the Ebro river and is the basis for most of the company’s top bottlings.
The spirit of experimentation and innovation permeates the culture at LAN, and winemaker María Barúa is continually pushing the limits and preconceptions people have of the region.
