Arzuaga Ribera del Duero Reserva Especial
Bodegas Arzuaga
Spain - Castilla y Leon - Ribera del Duero

VISUAL
High intensity, deep bright purplish-red with purplish nuances.
NOSE
Deep, complex, concentrated, and intense where the aromas of ripe black fruits, mint, cocoa, mineral and a light background of toasted and caramelized tones predominate. Very elegant and complex aromas that evolve favorably throughout the tasting.
MOUTH
Attack fresh and gentle, giving a very characteristic greasiness and fleshiness of this wine. Elegant mouthfeel, fresh and textured, to analyze with a long finish where we remember again the fruity primary aromas, spicy and caramelized. A wine "hand of iron with a silk glove."

Pairings

To complement the elegance of this wine we recommend its pairing with red meats, roasted or in sauce, ground or bird game, soft or lightly cured cheeses and bluefish. For a food pairing of contrasts try to leave a little for the end and enjoy it with a dessert of dark chocolate. If it is uncorked at the moment of consumption, it is advisable to decant carefully or serve previously in the glass and let the wine oxygenate. The ideal drinking temperature is 16º-18ºC.
