Today we have some great news for you: our La Planta has been named the Best Buy 2021 wine by Piero Bonarelli, Vice President of Business at El Catador. This Dominican company has been active for over 40 years in the importation and distribution market for the world’s biggest wine brands. We’re so proud to be one of them, as well as the fact that someone with as strong links to the wine world as Piero Bonarelli has included us in his selection this year. We were also thrilled to hear the kind words he had for both Bodegas Arzuaga and La Planta in his analysis of the wine.
‘I can’t think of a more representative wine and one with such a good value for money in my selection for this Best Buy 2021 as La Planta 2019. A wine that offers so many elements of quality, concentration but, above all, an excellent balance between the fruit and weight on the palate,’ explains Bonarelli in one of his videos summarising his selection for 2021.
‘La Planta is a wine that pays tribute to the family estate where it was born and Bodegas Arzuaga’s first vineyard was planted. Its name is in honour of the iconic ancient tree of these vineyards.’ El Catador’s Vice President of Business not only knows all about our ancient holm oak, but also that this wine hails from a vineyard at 911 metres above sea level, planted in calcareous clay soil in a continental climate, giving this estate very particular characteristics that are then reflected in both the grapes and the wine in your glass.
To finish, Bonarelli makes it clear that this wine is perfect for sharing and enjoying. ‘I define it as well-rounded and versatile. Its proprietor, Nacho Arzuaga, defines it as cheerful and free and easy. The truth is that this wine takes what the buyer paid for it and gives them back twice that in happiness. I declare myself Arzuaga wines’ number one fan!’ Here on our blog, we’d like to thank El Catador and Piero Bonarelli himself, who chose La Planta from the Dominican Republic.
