The wine

The Arzuaga Crianza is the flagship of Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro. The Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties with which this wine is made belong to the oldest part of the estate known as La Planta. The Tempranillo variety, specifically, belongs 80% to the La Maquinilla vineyard, the oldest in the entire estate. There, at 911 meters of altitude, in clay-calcareous soils and with the limestone mother rock a meter from the surface, the roots struggle to find the land from which to feed. The remaining 20% comes from centennial vineyards of boulders and sandy soils, in the area of the province of Burgos.

When the grapes arrive at the optimum ripening point, frequently in mid-October, the clusters are harvested in 15 kg boxes, and then passed to a selection table and destemmed until they are covered in stainless steel tanks. After a few days cold macerating, they will ferment at about 27ºC and, as wine, you will receive a 16 month aging in barrels, 50% French oak and 50% American oak, until it becomes a fine and subtle wine.

Its color is cherry red dressed in violet hues. Its nose is powerful, of high aromatic diversity, with a predominance of ripe red fruits accompanied by spicy touches and balsamic notes, with a roasted finish that looks stuporless. In the mouth they feel their great volume, the plastered tannins, and their soft and mellow sensations that last in time thanks to their great breadth and length. The balance between the mouth and the nose is absolute, making the Arzuaga Crianza an example of elegance and personality. Aromas of pure and incense adorn its dry and creamy finish.

The winery

Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro

Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro

Founded in the early 90s by the Arzuaga Navarro family, the winery that bears his name stands near the Duero river, on the road that connects Soria with Valladolid. The building is a song to the stone, a solid and rustic monastic evocation, with its arcades, its towers and the bell tower. It was Florentino Arzuaga, a great wine lover, who founded Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro after buying Finca La Planta, located in the Valladolid town of Quintanilla de Onésimo. Then came the...
