La Planta is a wine produced by Bodegas Arzuaga Navarro, located in the prestigious Ribera del Duero region in Spain. Known for creating high-quality, expressive wines, the Arzuaga winery sits in an area of limestone and chalky soils, ideal for grape growing.

La Planta is a red wine made from the Tempranillo grape, which is locally known as Tinto Fino. The name "La Planta" refers to the vineyard where the grapes for this wine are sourced. This vineyard is known for its sandy and clay soil, and the vines are +20 years old.

In terms of taste and aroma, La Planta generally exhibits a deep cherry color and offers a nose full of intense red fruit aromas, such as cherries and strawberries, often accompanied by hints of spices and a delicate touch of wood. This is due to the fact that La Planta is typically aged in oak barrels for around six months, which imparts subtle oaky flavors without overwhelming the fruit.

On the palate, La Planta is medium-bodied and well balanced, with the ripe fruit flavors carrying through, accompanied by soft tannins. The wine's overall profile is harmonious, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of food pairings. It goes particularly well with grilled or roasted meats, various Spanish tapas, or medium-aged cheeses.
