The Arienzo red crianza wine, from Bodegas Herederos del
Marqués de Riscal, is made from a selection of the best grapes of
the tempranillo, mazuelo and graciano varieties, from vineyards
located in Laguardia and Elciego.
The grapes are received in
the winery at the optimum point ofripeness and then undergo
the natural processes of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation
in stainless steel vats, with very strict control of the temperature
during these processes.
After fermentation is complete the
wine passes into American-oak barrels where it is aged for 18
months, followed by further ageing and rounding off in the bottle
