Lacrimus '5' Rioja Tinto

Sweetness: Dry

Grape: Tempranillo

Grape info: Spain’s most planted red variety, famous for its role in the blends of Rioja. Tempranillo produces markedly tannic wines with notes of leather, tobacco, spice and sometimes strawberries. Unusually for Spanish reds, it doesn’t produce explosive levels of alcohol and tends towards a lower acidity.

About: Rodríguez y Sanzo is a family wine company with vineyards across many important Spanish D.Os. Winemaker Javier Rodríguez employs an ethos of sustainable agriculture, increasingly within the framework of biodynamic and organic viticulture to create distinctive wines, rooted in tradition, with a modern twist.

Fermentation for 12-15 days to extract optimal amounts of fruit and colour. Aged for 5 months in new American oak barrels.

Tasting note: Intense cherry colour, with purple shades. Seductive aromas of red and black fruits with hints of vanilla and liquorice. Meaty and silky texture.

Character: Strawberry, vanilla, liquorice
