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 »

  • Cano Tempranillo-Garnacha 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A good wine for the price but far from great but still very drinkable. Definitely improved with decanting. Cherry and rasberry mixed with very light vanilla and caramel. Read More

  • Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2011

    Snoothrank:

    For the price this is a great Spanish wine. Wonderful to drink with blackberry and vanilla flavors followed by a lovely silky velvety finish. Great value for a great drinkable wine. I drank the wine in April 2015 but this wine will be good for another 5 years at least. Read More

  • Telmo Rodriguez Basa Blanco 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rueda of this quality and price is a treat - the nose is full of perfume from sweet garden flowers plus a hefty infusion of peach. On the tongue there is spritely brightness - acidity, apple, and more peach; the mouth-feel is excellent with a well balanced, slightly dry entry. Finish is rich and of medium length. Excellent bargain. 89 points. 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...
