Florentino Martinez Monje --owner and winemaker for Luberri -- has a non-interventionist approach to his vineyards. He prefers the fruit to grow naturally in accordance with the microclimate in Elciego, a town within Rioja Alevesa. He keeps yields low, utilizes whole-cluster fermentation for some of the grapes, uses indigenous yeasts, and ensures that the fruit is concentrated and healthy. Orlegi is a return to the traditional light, fruit-forward wines of Rioja Alavesa.
We get nice notes of leather and tar on the nose with fresh red and dark berry. On the palate the fruit pops with spice and light acidity to balance and nice weight and light tannins. This is a classic, old-world Tempranillo from Rioja for everyday drinking.
Here we add information on wines as they come in. We will try to keep up with out-of-stocks and vintage changes but we make no promises. For the most up to date information call, email or stop by. Cheers!
