Bodegas Arzuaga - Ribera del Duero Crianza 2020


Bodegas Arzuaga-Navarro has over 150 hectares of vineyards distributed between the immediate vicinity of the cellar and the natural area of La Planta estate. The Arzuaga-Navarro vineyards enjoy a unique climate: during the day, a sharp sunlight bathes the land, while nights are fresh and humid. This combination of climatic factors favors a slow and perfect grape ripeness, resulting in a lush, aromatic fruit with great acidity.

In the Castilian region, characterized by having scarcely fertile soils, the Tinto Fino (or Tempranillo) varieties, as well as the French varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are cultivated. 

Arzuaga Ribera del Duero Crianza 95% Tempranillo and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark cherry color with purple highlights. Powerful nose and high aromatic diversity of ripe red and black fruits, spicy and balsamic notes, and a roasted finish. Soft and mellow in the mouth with a great fruitiness and length.

"A mixture of black and red fruits with sweet cinnamon spices and a balsamic edge. Some mussels and stones, as well. Medium to full body on the palate with mineral, chalky tannins and a juicy finish. Pretty seamless and long. Drinkable now, but better in two years." - 92 points, James Suckling
