A cherry-red masterpiece, the Amaya Arzuaga is a great red blend of mostly Tempranillo, and is a smooth and velvety delight.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
This delicious red wine is made with mostly Tempranillo grapes from Ribero del Duero Domination of Origin in Spain. It is rich and intense, with a medium body. Its consistency is elegant, smooth and velvety.
It gives fresh aromas of grass and hay, with toffee and red fruit, and spicy and balsamic notes. Each sip of the Amaya Arzuaga Ribera del Duero is elegant and persistent, and silky on the palate with a lingering finish. It’s a completely delicious masterpiece.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
This Ribera del Duero is a hearty wine, which pairs perfectly with equally hearty food. Cold cuts like salami, chistorra, or chorizo. Red meat is the obvious choice. Have a glass with grilled or roast lamb or steak, or even ox tail and barbecued ribs. If you’re not into the red meat, pair with roast or grilled vegetables, like mushrooms, squash, or eggplant.
Unconventional but brilliant, you can continue on with your Ribera del Duero for dessert. Pair with anything dark chocolate, like a square of degustation chocolate, or a flourless dark chocolate torte.
