D.O. Ribera del Duero (Castilla y León)
Arzuaga Crianza is a red wine from Ribera del Duero by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro, a winery founded in the 90s thanks to the Arzuaga Navarro family, namely, Florentino Arzuaga, after buying La Planta, located in Quintanilla de onésimo.
The climate in the Ribera del Duero is continental but with an Atlantic character. It is characterized by dry summers, long and harsh winters and a pronounced seasonal temperature fluctuation with moderate-low rainfall, about 350-500 mm per year.
Arzuaga Crianza is a tempranillo from La Maquinilla, the winery's oldest vineyard in La Plana, from vines over 20 years old planted on land about 911 metres above the sea. The vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soils.
The harvest is done manually and grapes undergo table selection in the cellar. Regarding the development, after stripping, the juice goes to stainless steel tanks to be macerated. Subsequently, an alcoholic fermentation takes place very slowly at a controlled temperature of 27 °C.
Finally, Arzuaga Crianza is aged for 16 months in French ad American oak barrels.
The palate is concentrated, velvety, round and tasty. Notes of black fruit and fine wood tannins appear. Long, elegant finish.
Dark cherry colour with purple reflections. Clean and bright.
The nose presents fruits, woods, florals and balsamic. Touches of wood due aging and a caramelised background.
