Lagunilla Rioja Reserva 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Don Felipe Lagunilla San Martin founded this famous Rioja Bodega in 1885. The quality of the Lagunilla wines and many others owe much to his pioneering work in defeating Phylloxera which hit the region in the 1870’s. It was he who recommended the use and introduction of American rootstocks to the Rioja vineyards. His achievement was rewarded by a commendation of The Order of Merit, granted by King Alfonso XIII in 1908.

Lagunilla:
Bodegas Lagunilla is a historic winery founded in 1885 by Don Felipe Lagunilla San Martin in Rioja, Spain.

Kräftiges Rubinrot. Breites Aroma nach Zwetschgenkompott und reifen Früchten. Viel Körper. Abgerundeter Geschmack mit würzigem und samtenem Finale.



Tasting Notes:

Round and full, meaty, well balanced, aromatic and with a lingering after-taste.
