El Velado 94+WA
Lanciego, Rioja Alavesa
$87.99 - US Low $105

El Velado is an old and beautiful vineyard located at a height of 600 meters. It is the first vineyard of which we are captivated in Lanciego and the one that, probably, is the best expression of the beauty and singularity of this place. It was also part of Altos Lanzaga until this first bottling. El Velado was planted in the eastern part of the town of Lanciego, and for the most part it is oriented to the west and south, enjoying a warmer light. Due to this exposure, the traditional grafting was done mostly with Garnacha and Tempranillo and with some other ancient varieties, including some white ones. Its 80 years, its size and the sculptural shape of its bushvines, make this a very special vineyard, full of light, which we wanted to bottle and express separately. ~Winery

94+ pts Wine Advocate (Luis Gutierrez)
The Rioja single-vineyard 2019 El Velado comes from a southeast-facing plot in the village of Lanciego that has a high proportion of Garnacha from Viñaspre as well as other varieties in a field blend where Tempranillo dominates. The grapes were picked the 10th of October, a little later than anticipated. It fermented in an open-top 3,000-kilo oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in barriques and foudres for 14 to 16 months. All the 2019s feel quite homogeneous; there is a common thread in them all, balanced and serious, less heavy than other vintages, quite harmonious. The finest vintage of this wine? 1,520 bottles were filled in May 2021.
