Characteristics of Arzuaga Ecológico Crianza
Arzuaga Crianza Ecológico is a D.O. Ribera del Duero wine by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro.
A Tinta del País single varietal, it is farmed organically without the use of herbicides.
The vineyards represent the different types of soil found in the Ribera del Duero: clayey soils containing limestone, gravel with sand and/or clay, situated at an altitude of between 750 and 1,000 metres above sea level.
The harvest takes place in various stages as the grapes ripen in their respective plots. Selection occurs in the solely in the vineyard rather than on the sorting table. The grapes are also not destemmed, ensuring that they survive even though they have been cut from the vine. To avoid the potential astringency caused by the presence of stems, only those with a very "ripe" herbaceous part are selected. During the first days of barreling, the grapes are lightly pressed with their own yeasts to stimulate fermentation, and light pump-overs and batonage are applied. 14 days later, the wine passes through a vertical press, and is stored in French oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. Arzuaga Crianza Ecológico is aged for 17 months on its own lees until it is bottled, without filtration or fining.

Ribera del Duero is a Denomination of Origin located on the northern plateau, bathed by the waters of the River Duero, where they produce delicious and recognised red wines with great complexity made from the Trinto Fino grape variety.
As in all European countries, many Spanish wines owe their reputation to the efforts of some traditional families and some large companies that have kept two basic requirements: quality and personality. These family companies have managed to gather their own heritage that allows them to produce wines "at home", with all the control guarantees. This is the case of this laudable winery, Arzuaga Navarro. Since its early days, at the beginning of the 90s, harvest after harvest they have produced wines with the seal of the house, and with the unequalled style of Ribera del Duero.
