D.O.Ca. Rioja / Arnegui
Arnegui Reserva is made exclusively from the best vines from selected vineyards in La Rioja Alta from old vines with small production. The result is a wine that truly shouts Rioja combining tannic structure and character with elegance and poise.
Between 16-18 º C
Bright red in colour with a subtle ruby rim. The bouquet is a complex aroma of dried fruit and ripe blackberries, leather notes and nuances of vanilla. On the palate, the wine is very soft and round, ripe with a silky texture and subtle herbal undertones. The wine has a long-lasting, warming finish.
A wonderful accompaniment to grilled red and game meats, risotto with wild boar, ragù with fresh pasta, venison, Castilian roasts and also a pleasure with goose.
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are put into small stainless steel tanks. The must is then kept on skins for 2-3 days to extract the colour and tannins. It then begins alcoholic fermentation for 8 to 12 days at a temperature of 26-28ºC. before beginning the malolactic fermentation at 20°C. The wine is then aged for 18 months in American oak barrels and a further 18 months in bottle.
