Raso de Larrainzar is more than a wine. It is the soul of our family and a tribute to the beautiful land that has belonged to our family for the last 160 years. After being harvested by hand, the different varieties are fermented and aged separately during 14 months, using the best French oak barrels. Only then we create the final blend, to achieve a perfect balance, where the fruit always plays the leading role.
It’s elegant and subtle, with good ripeness and balance, with nicely integrated oak and fine tannins. Nicely crafted, pleasant and easy to drink.
