The wine

La Planta is an excellent everyday wine from Arzuaga Navarro, a prestigious winery located in Quintanilla de Onésimo, in the heart of Ribera del Duero. La Planta expresses the youthfreshness and balance of fruit collected in their eponymous vineyard. At an altitude of 911 metres above sea level, the vines are cared for with the utmost attention and produce a low but very concentrated yield.

What does this wine taste like?

The wonderful aromatic sensations delighting the nose are the perfect prelude to its velvety and flavoursome mouthfeel and taste. It has a surprising complexity, especially for a wine which has only aged in oak for six months. Aromas of mintliquorice and cocoa accompany a body of wild fruit jam. It is a freshherbalsoothing and rounded wine which is very moreish. Lively, almost spontaneous, but with the maturity and equilibrium provided by a short but well-measured ageing process which adds hints of toasted wood and a touch of elegance to the final result.

Winemaking

The harvest is carried out manually and grapes are collected in 15-kg crates before undergoing a careful selection process. They are then destemmed and macerated in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 22º and 24º. Finally, the wine ages for six months in American and French oak barrels.

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...
