Availability: In stock
Situated at 855 metres of altitude and composed of clay soils, the vineyard, called Pago Los Astrales, is planted with 45-year-old vines
Hand-harvested and scrupulously selected, the grapes were fully destemmed and cold macerated before being fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature.
After that, this red wine from Ribera del Duero was transferred into French oak barrels and aged for a period of 18 months.
Finally, Arrocal Selección Especial 2020 was aged for some months in the bottle before being released onto the market.
Aerate this Crianza red wine some time before drinking.
The red wine Arrocal Selección Especial is deep ruby with some garnet reflections.
|Nose||Deliciously ripe black fruit-black cherries and blackcurrants-with a splash of cedar, cinnamon and clove, remembrances of bitter cocoa and toast and an earthy note. The nose of this Tinto Fino is rather appealing.|
Balanced and smooth, this Crianza form Bodegas Arrocal has a crisp acidity and some polished tannins. Lively wild berries with some spicy and earthy overtones, ending with a balsamic note.
