D.O.Ca. Rioja / Arnegui
Arnegui Crianza is made exclusively from the best vines at our selected vineyards in La Rioja Alta. The Tempranillo grapes are picked from old vines with a small yield. The result is a wine that truly combines the tannic structure of Rioja wines with elegance and balance.
At 15º C
Intense ruby red with touches of violet. Fruity aromas of sweet cherries, red plums, orange peel and a well-integrated grass and oak touch. The aromas are mirrored by the palate's flavours. Round and soft tannins and subtle notes of sweet spices.
A perfect companion to an aperitif that includes tomatoes stuffed with pine nuts, peppers, meat and aged cheese.
The grapes are harvested at the right ripening level. A period of cold maceration allows the extraction of skin colour and fruit bouquet. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks takes place at 25-28ºC over a period of around 10-12 days. This is then followed by malolactic fermentation for around 5-10 days. The wine ages for a period of 12 months in new American oak barrels.
