The palate is juicy, elegant tannins with a nice vibrant acidity to balance the palate. Hints of liquorice and the pepper return, very persistent and elegant on the finish.

It was at the beginning of the 1990s when, after buying La Planta estate, Florentino Arzuaga began planting vines, building the winery and, of course, making wine...
