The mazuelo (also known as carignan) is a grape variety that historically has been part of the great wines of Rioja, being largely responsible for its longevity. Arizcuren solomazuelo aims to highlight the benefits of this variety in a specific place, the northern slopes of Sierra de Yerga. Vineyard in goblet, height of 550m above sea level, in clayey soils with abundant pebbles and low fertility. The viticulture practised seeks the highest quality grapes: low yields around 4,000 Kg/Ha, basal deleafing 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.
