The prestigious Arzuaga Navarro winery was founded by the ambitious and dynamic Florentino Arzuaga, in the wine village of Quintanilla de Onésimo, 20 minutes away from the spectacular crusader castle in Peñafiel. The town of Quintanilla de Onésimo is considered to be Ribera Del Duero's "Golden Mile", as it is home to such wine superstars as Vega Sicilia, Pingus and Viña Mayor. In fact, Arzuaga's vines nestle right up to Vega Sicilia's vines. The beautiful Arzuaga estate is located in the most privileged part of the Duero region, rising 100 metres above the river. The grapes ripen very evenly here, with plenty of sunshine during the day and much cooler temperatures at night. This wine region of Spain is extremely dry and as such, the region can happily note an absence of fungal diseases. The Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) grape is the celebrity for the Ribera del Duero wines, and Arzuaga use it magically, combining and complementing it with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
This wine is harvested by hand at its peak maturation, the grapes are covered in deposits of stainless steel, and are maintained in cold for a few day to ferment at 27º C. After the fermentation the mixture is aged for 16 months in both American and French oak barrels to create a potent, fruity wine
