OT: La Planta 2014

Another interesting wine from the Ribera del Duero DO, very attractively priced. For me it was quite a pleasant surprise. An excellent example of a job well done.

  • 20160320_145919 Winery: Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro, Ctra. N.122 Aranda-Valladolid, Km. 325 C.P. 47350 Quintanilla de Onésimo (Valladolid). Since its founding in 1993, Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro has been known for its high-quality wines (Crianzas, Reservas, and Grand Reservas), in DO Ribera del Duero. The La Planta estate is named after a 1,000-year-old Mediterranean oak tree presiding on the property. La Planta is also the name of our youngest wine, which is made from grapes grown within a large 3,458-acre natural hunting reserve that is situated in Quintanilla de Onésimo. Within this reserve grow 370 acres of vines, mostly of Tinto Fino but complemented by a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
