Description

Arzuaga Reserva Especial is produced from grapes from century-old vines grown traditionally in chalky clay soil. These special characteristics result in very low yield per hectare. High intensity, intense purple red with cardinal hues. Great aromatic complexity with high initial intensity with very fine aromas dominated by fruity tones that gradually merge with the spices, tobacco and caramel typical of the aging as well as with balsamic and mineral touches. Very fine and complex aromas that evolve throughout the tasting. Fleshy, creamy and unctuous wine. With a characteristic freshness that makes us recall the previously detected fruity tones in the aftertaste.

Bodegas Arzuaga is located in Valladolid, in the middle of the Ribera del Duero Denomination of Origin. The setting where the wines produced by the winery are born can be found in the La Planta estate, a property that the Arzuaga family owns in the Valladolid town of Quintanilla de Onésimo. This estate has a privileged situation for the cultivation of the vine, since its vines receive the sun and the necessary humidity for the perfect ripening of the grape. La Planta is a place where the flora and fauna of the area coexist. A flora made up of pines, holm oaks and junipers and a fauna made up of wild boars and deer. This coexistence is, without a doubt, the confirmation of the love that the Arzuaga family feels for the world of nature. The farm consists of 1,400 hectares, a luxury in the middle of the Denomination and Golden Mile of the Ribera del Duero.
