Telmo Rodriguez is considered one of Spain’s most talented and prolific winemakers. He champions the revival of forgotten varietals and underappreciated sub-appellations with superior terroir. All of his wines are organic and the emphasis is on authenticity and quality. Telmo is also a remarkably democratic winemaker who is equally proud of his rare and limited bottling as he is of his portfolio of everyday wines.
Technical notes
Telmo has been working organically and bioynamically for a long time. This release represents his first step toward official certification which allows the mention on the back label. It is distinguished from the “regular” LZ in that it comes entirely from plots that he owns. From vineyards in Lanciego that are planted to clay and calcerous slopes. The Tempranillo, Graciano and Garnacha grapes were hand-harvested, fermented with native yeasts in cement tanks and stainless steel and ages for 4-6 months in cement tanks.
