The Story

Selected grapes from 40-60 year old vines coming from “Pago El Rincón”, the oldest parcel (13 acres) at our own vineyard “Viña Lanciano”. Culmen, from the latin culmination, is only produced in exceptional vintages and only in the category of reserva. The thick and dark bottle make it suitable for cellaring.
