Arco Viejo Crianza

D.O. Ribera del Duero

It is a Crianza wine from D.O. Ribera del Duero elaborated with 100% Tempranillo grapes from 50 years old vines.

The highest quality grapes in structure and character are destined for this ‘crianza’ wine. After a careful de-stemming and crushing process, the grapes are sent to stainless steel tanks where a cold film maceration is carried out at 5ºC for 72 hours, with the aim of obtaining the maximum potential from the primary aromas. The grape is fermented with a yeast selected from the cellar at constant temperature of 25ºC for a period between 7 and 10 days, prolonging the maceration 10 days more to obtain a better concentration of tannin and to improve the structure of the final wine.
After the malolactic fermentation, the wine is placed in new and used American and French oak barrels where it will stay for 12 months. After at least one year ageing in the bottle, we market the wine.

TASTING NOTE

Excellent depth of cherry red, very dark. On the nose, first black fruit aromas appear to continue with milky hints, vanillas and roasted aromas. On the palate, it is full -bodied, with an abundant and noble tannin that will continue rounding off in the bottle. Aromatic and persistent end.

RECOMMENDATION

Arco Viejo Crianza pairs perfectly with:

Red meats, lamb, pork, big game and cured cheeses.
