Spain
DOC Rioja
75cl.
Alc. 14.5º
Year: 2015
Sugar: 1 - 2gr/L
GRAPES: 85% Tempranillo, 15% Other experimental grapes. Age of vines: over 45 years.
AGED: 20 months in new casks. Type of oak: 50% French 50% American. Made from a selection of old vines grown in soil which is not very fertile which ensures a low yield of clusters (between 4500 and 5500 Kg. per hectare).
This wine was produced for the first time in 1994 with the intention of producing something special, different from the traditional Reserva wine. And that was certainly accomplished; The wine is completely different from the others under the same classification. It's more intense in colour, with explosive aromas and powerful entry. The grapes used for the Reserva de la Familia are selected from old vines, those which combine a series of characteristics such as good orientation and exposure to the sun, and a poor soil which ensures low yields, assuring a maximum quality grape. It is a modern approach to tradition, a typical Reserva but with a firm, full-bodied blast of ripe fruit.

GRAPE VARIETIES
85% Tempranillo, 15% Other experimental grapes. Age of vines: over 45 years.
BOUQUET
What a nose, what a lovely smell...Intensely aromatic with a predominance of ripe, mature red fruit. Sweet and spicy with lactic nuances and a somewhat balsamic background.
PALATE
This wine is very full bodied on entry. It is powerful and fleshy, elegant and expressive while remaining subtle. It really goes down well and is extremely deep and rich. Bursting with flavour with well integrated rounded tannins, making it serious but easy to drink.
VITICULTURE

Respect for the environment and the hard work of each and every link in the human chain involved in the process are vital for turning the boon of rational viticulture into success.

Rational viticulture is a farming system which optimises the use of natural resources and mechanisms to the maximum, guaranteeing the future of sustainable agriculture.

Biological, chemical and other methods are carefully selected and balanced in order to ensure the protection of the environment.

The use of herbicides, synthetic fertilisers and aggressive products or practices is strictly forbidden in order to protect the surroundings and obtain vines with a strengthened immune system so that they can defend themselves on their own.

For this work, they have a specific field department made up of an agricultural engineer, a technical agronomist and oenologist as well as 8 workers who are true vineyard masters. The aim is to have healthy land, (surely the best legacy they can leave for future generations) and as a result, healthier fruit and wines.

WINEMAKING

Care, perfection and loving attention to what they do can be seen from the very way they transport the clusters of grapes, in small plastic crates in the case of the oldest vineyards and in small trailers for younger vines.

As well as selecting on the vine itself, ALL Luis Cañas wines undergo a double selection process.

First they pass through a sorting table where the clusters are selected by hand and subsequently, each individual berry is checked on a Mistral table, so that only those in perfect condition continue in the process.

The most stringent winemaking process. They select the French- and American-oak casks, from among the best cooperages in the world. The cask stock is renewed continuously, so the average age is three years. A real luxury.

FOOD PAIRING
Cured cheese, blue cheese, goat cheese, veal meat, lamb, stews with intense flavour, barbecue meat, fish.
