Excellent outing from the much-lauded ’04 vintage, the Lanciano Reserva is extremely well crafted, balanced, and...

This is simply the best Rioja I have had in Canada that was not a Gran Reserva. Worth the price (and it's double what I usually spend). Layered, complex, deep flavours that last a long long time

The 2004 Bodegas Lan Viña Lanciano Reserva is medium bodied, nicely aromatic, fruity to INTEGRATED wine. On the nose and especially at the beginning, yogurty cherry is predominant, followed by cedar and green pepper. On the palate, red cherries and dark chocolate emerge. Tannins are subtle to refined (decant for 30 min), acidity is nice and in balance with tannins and the finish is long, smooth and silky. It is good to drink now and will remain so for more than 5 years (especially with a nice > 5 cm cork). My impression NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - a recommended buy even though a bit $$. Tasted June/11.

Big bold wine, lot's of flavour: dense smokey fruit, greek oregano. Well balanced concentration of fruit, alcohol and tannin.
