Vermut Rojo Lacuesta “La Conzia”, the “botanicals” or herbal extracts (herbs and aromatic plants cold-macerated in white wine) are first aged in American oak barrels and then added to the white base wine along with sugar, citric acid, caramel and alcohol.
On the nose it is highly aromatic, evoking the macerated herbs used: vanilla, chamomile, gentian and others.
In the mouth it is a perfect balance between bitterness, sweetness and acidity with a long finish.
Félix Martínez Lacuesta founded the Bodega in 1895, together with his brothers. He was the first president of the National Society of Winemakers and Associated Industries and he directed the La Rioja Wine Syndicate. Lacuesta Vermut remains to this day the only vermouth originating from Haro, the heart of the La Rioja wine region. As a winery, Martine Lacuesta has direct control over the grapes used to create their vermouth, and applies aging techniques to mold their aperitifs into perfect expressions of local tradition.
