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 »

  • Oro de Castilla 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Agree with editorial review of almonds followed by white fruit. Well blended a bit fizzy on the onset. Screw cap. Well priced. Would buy again. Read More

  • Concha Y Toro Serie Riberas Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Marchigue 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pungent and richly fruited aromas of blackberry and earthy/savory notes of olive and dark plum. This is elegant and assertive on the palate with excellent balance and finesse, showing dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant, pleasant spice and a creamy chocolate and dark espresso finish.91 pts Read More

  • Ardal Reserva Seleccion Especial 2010

    Snoothrank:

    An interesting wine. A very subdued entry of unsweetened black fruit introduces this wine to the palatefruit is detectable, but is not syrupy fruit-bomb fruit. Then some very serious tannin. I want to say that this wine is light on acid, but, on the other hand, Im not sure that more acid would improve it. It is a remarkably easy to drink wine. Read More

  • 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...
