Ribera Del Duero Wine

This region is located within Castilla y Leon and runs along the Duero River. The area concentrates mainly on red wines starring Tinto Fino (a.k.a. Tinto del Pais, a.k.a. Tempranillo). This is customarily blended with indigenous Garnacha and other Spanish-grown French grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec and Merlot. The only white grape produced is Albillo, which is mostly consumed locally. 

The area has been producing wines for many centuries, since the Roman era. Up until the 1970’s, bodega Vega Sicilia hogged most of the spotlight until the 1980’s when Alejandro Fernandez and his bodega Pesquera gained attention, with others cult favorites like Pingus and Abadia Retuerta soon to follow. Now the region consists of a mix of traditional wine-making to more modern experimentation as well as accessible, quality table wines.

  • Ribera del Duero but after this bottle I'm opening something fortified. The prospect of Hillary's cackle and caw for the next four years leaves me terrified, but the idea of the Donald's disinterest in the state of the world is equally terrifying.But we survived Fillmore, who had a similar hair situation, and we also survived Pierce, Polk, Hardi...

  • Bodegas Vina Vilano Ribera del Duero Reserva 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Wow. Big Tannin. I like it. Blackberry fruit on entry might be a bit candied, but that is quickly blown away by puckery tannin. The only other analog that comes to mind is unsweetened chocolateor, this is it, Mexican mole sauce. There is no denying that this wine is a mouthful. $14 at Costco. Im going back for more.

    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

  • D - he didn't really overstep IMHO. But his book has really limited appeal ... ... distinguish Rioja from Ribera del Duero, or Tempranillo from Cab. But many people are much more astute - you were at Brian's where Mike Smith could identify wine from specific vineyards - he new them so well he could call them out cold.It's a result of repeated...
