Owned by Florentino Martinez Monje, Luberri is located in Elciego in the heart of Rioja Alavesa. Florentino farms 35 hectares of old vines located principally between the villages of Elciego and La Guardia. A farmer at heart, Florentino was the original winemaker at the world-renowned Artadi before establishing his own winery in 1992.
The Seis (six) de Luberri Rioja is named for the number of months it spends in barrel. Although this style is known as Roble in Ribera del Duero the term is not permitted in Rioja. It is made from 100% Tempranillo fruit and is whole bunch fermented, adding funk and further complexity to the wine. The Biga de Luberri is a full Crianza in a more traditional style, with great richness and depth.
