Regular price £34.00

Mazuelo (Carignan) has historically been part of the blend of the best Rioja wines, being key in their longevity. "Arizcuren solomazuelo" intends to showcase the attributes of this grape in a precise place: the northern slopes of the Sierra de Yerga. Bush vines at over 530 meters of altitude are planted in clayey soils with abundant pebbles and low fertility. The viticulture practised seeks the highest quality grapes: low yields around 30 Hl/Ha, basal de-leafing in the north-east side, optimal phenolic maturation of skin and seeds, all these without excessive probable alcoholic content. The vinification intends to be as respectful as possible with the grape personality by reducing the exogenous influences to the maximum.
