Characteristics of Arzuaga Reserva
Arzuaga Reserva is a D.O. Ribera del Duero red wine by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro.
A coupage between Tinto Fino (95 percent), Merlot (3 percent) and Albillo (2 percent), made from the old vines of the winery's own "La Planta" estate.
The soil of "La Planta" is clayey and rich in limestone at less than one metre underground. Poor soil and harsh Spanish weather conditions at this altitude result in scarce yields but also in very concentrated wines.
The harvest takes place manually at the grapes' peak ripening stage in 15-kg boxes. After passing through a sorting table, part of the grapes are de-stemmed separately and later stored in stainless steel tanks together with the rest of the grapes. They are stored there in the cold for a few days until alcoholic fermentation may begin at a temperature of 29º C.
Arzuaga Reserva is aged for 26 months in French and American oak barrels.

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.
