Tempranillo, Seis de Luberri
Owned by Florentino Martínez Monje, Luberri islocated 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 Artadi before establishing his own
winery in 1992. He made a name for himself and his estate by resurrecting the traditional style of
semi-carbonic maceration of Rioja wine of Rioja. Florentino is very hands-on at the winery, partici-
pating on all aspects of production, but his true love is working in the vineyards. All the plots are
farmed with minimal treatment of the soils and vines. Individual vineyard sites are fermented and
vinified seperately. By keeping yields low (around 34 to 45 hectoliters per hectare) Florentino ex-
tracts grapes with great concentration and flavor.
Named Seis for the six months that it spends in American oak barrels. This wine is made from 100% Tempranillo grown around the town of Elciego in Rioja Alavesa.
