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 »

  • Protocolo Tinto Dominio de Eguren 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic tempranillo, with aromas of ripe berries, plum and leather and just a hint of mint. The taste is not as laden with jammy fruit as the nose would suggest, instead the fruit was subdued and quickly transitioned to some notes of iron and toasted oak midpalate... Read More

  • Emilio Moro Finca Resalso 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and chalky aromas with clay and mineral density laying over red fruit, tart raspberry and cranberry. Black fruit flavors, mostly blackberry and blueberry as well, showing good structure in the mouth and a full bodied acidity to lift the palate and uncover notes of dark earth and dark chocolate on the finish.

    Wine review by Sofia Fisher


  • 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...
