At Year 6, it is absolutely exceptional to taste! What is Biga, you ask? Biga is the number two in Basque and the name of the second wine Luberri founder Florentino Monje makes in his line, Luberri Crianza. It also happens to be one of his most popular wines, a wine of which we have yet to find anyone who is not a fan. Luberri Biga is complex and layered, fun, lively, and simply delicious-to-drink wine made from the indigenous tempranillo grape. Biga captures the spirit of the wines of Luberri, Rioja wines to drink for pure pleasure at the table. Biga is made from two estate-owned tempranillo vineyards located around the town of Elciego at 520m, grown in clay-calcareous soils in Rioja Alavesa. Notes of dark fruit like plum, as well as red fruit like cherry, oak, and vanilla.
