The Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties (Tempranillo 94%, Cabernet Sauvignon 6%) used to make this wine comes from the oldest part of the Bodegas Arzuaga La Planta estate. 

The Tempranillo variety with which this wine is made belongs 70% to the La Maquinilla vineyard, the oldest of our La Planta farm; cultivated at 911 meters of altitude in calcareous clay soils with limestone rock one meter from the surface, together with 30% of grapes from centuries-old vineyards of pebbled and sandy soils, from the area of the province of Burgos.

In mid October at the optimum point of maturation, the bunches are harvested in boxes of 15 kg. then passed through a selection table and destemmed and enclosed in stainless steel tanks for a few days of macerating in cold temperatures, and then fermented at a maximum temperature of 26ºC. A period of 16 months in barrels, 75% French oak and 25% American oak, makes it an elegant and subtle wine.

Ideal companion for red meats, big game and feather, roasted or in sauce. Blue sh and so cheeses. Service temperature: 16-18ºC.
