for this region?

This region is located north-northwest of Madrid. Its terrain is a combination of flat, open plains banded by hills and mountains. The Duero River cuts through it on its way to Douro in Portugal.  

Rueda is its most famous white wine, with the primary grape of Verdejo. These wines tend to have flavors of summer fruits and a refreshing acidity with many pairing possibilities from sushi and Asian dishes to scallops and other shellfish and even cool summer soups like chilled sweet pea. Another important white wine of the area is Godello. These wines tend to be more dry than Ruedas, with more minerality and zing. 
 
But this region is most famous for its reds. Most notable, the Tinto Fino (a.k.a. Tinto Fina, a.k.a. Tinto del Pais, a.k.a. Tinta de Toro, a.k.a. Tempranillo) driven Ribero del Dueros, Zamoras and Toros. This area is also home to the D.O. Bierzo, known for wines made from Cabernet Franc’s cousin Mencia, which are often rustic, but versatile, rich in flavor and value Read more »

  • Juan Gil Tridente Tempranillo 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This review from Drinkhacker.com pretty much is a perfect match for my experience - '...100% Tempranillo from western Spain, near the Portuguese border. A dark and dense wine, it features leathery and peppery notes atop a darkly fruity, almost raisiny core. Heavy tannin and dusty coal notes pervade. B+.' A little young still, but nevertheless, ...

  • Torres Celeste Crianza Ribera del Duero 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Better now that it sat for a few months. The fruit is lovely and enticing - mostly lush red berry with dark cherry nuances, deep seated wood, forest floor, herbal notes and mocha. Deep filling aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 89 points Read More

  • Terra d'Uro Finca la Rana 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Good floral accents to black cherry, raspberry and spice. There is chocolate note late and the body, though full and impacting is not heavily tannic but is a tad bit tart. Food wine - Paul 89 points Read More

    Wine review by JulRenA


  • I bought a bottle of Palacio de Arganza Tinto 1998 today in Barcelona for E7.85. I'm from New Zealand where we drink our own NZ and Australian reds, and where the mark-up bumps up the price of Spanish imports. It seemed to go very well with tomato, red capsicum, parmesan cheese, olive oil and "rustica" bread. I've searched for information on thi...
