To make our Dominio de ARVS crianza, we select Tempranillo grapes from fields situated in the north of Rioja Alta. The vineyards are over 30 years old.
The Atlantic climate and clayey-chalky soil nurture the aroma and taste complexity of this wine, achieving a perfect balance.
The grapes are picked by hand in the early weeks of October when they are at just the right stage of ripeness.
Viticulture: Rioja Alta.
Yield: 6000 kg/ha.
