Arzuaga Ribera del Duero La Planta
Bodegas Arzuaga
Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

Deep violet red. Clean and bright with a range of red fruits (raspberry and cherry) that dominate with a high aromatic intensity, joined by balsamic, cacao, coffee, and roasted tones. Fresh, elegant, easy, and balanced in the mouth with a lightly sweet, toasted, and pleasant aftertaste.

Grapes were picked by hand at their optimum ripeness. Bunches were brought to the winery in plastic crates and sorted at a sorting table. After destemming, grapes were pumped into stainless-steel vats where they macerated at a cool temperature and the alcoholic fermentation took place at 22-24ºC. Once the fermentation was finished, the wine was aged for six months in French and American oak barrels.

wine enthusiast 91 pts"A juicy, fruity red with blackberry, bark and hints of dried fruit. Medium body, linear and fine tannins and a fruity finish. Quite ripe, but a nice feel to this young wine. Better in 2020."

vinous logo"Inky ruby. Dark berries, roasted coffee and a hint of spiciness on the nose. In a plush, open-knit style, showing good energy to the sweet black and blue fruit and vanilla flavors. The spicy note recurs on a long, smooth finish that shows just a hint of tannins. Aged for six months in new and used French and American oak. - Josh Raynolds"
