La Planta is a D.O. Ribera del Duero red wine by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro, based in Quintanilla de Onésimo, near Valladolid. It is a single varietal Tinto Fino made from vines that are over 20 years old, all farmed on the winery’s own “La Planta” estate. The soil of “La Planta” is clayey and rich in limestone, and the estate is located 900 metres above sea level. Poor soil and harsh Spanish weather conditions at this altitude result in scarce yields but also in very concentrated wines. The harvest takes place manually at the grapes' peak ripening stage in 15-kg boxes. After selection of the clusters, they are de-stemmed and mashed in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 22-24ºC. La Planta is aged for six months in barrels of French and American oak. A delicious, elegant and fruity wine from the Ribera del Duero.
