Tasting Notes 

Nose

Fresh soft red forest fruit flavours and earthy aromas are balanced with spicy oak.

Palate

A round, full and aromatic wine with a lingering finish.

Production Method

After careful fermentation at temperatures not exceeding 28°C, the wine is kept in vats for a period of 12 months. It is then transferred to oak casks for ageing of approximately 24 months, depending on the vintage. After bottling, it continues to mature for a further 3 years prior to release.

History

Back in the day, Felipe Lagunilla was the man who worked hardest to rescue Rioja’s vineyards from the Phylloxera crisis. Made Comendador by the King, he is renowned for leading the Spanish charge to replant vines grafted with American rootstock which were already resistant to Phylloxera. 

Founded in 1885, and one of the most traditional bodegas in Rioja Alta, it is the home to some of the best Reservas and Crianza this wine region has ever produced.
