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.

  • 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

  • Bodegas Resalte de Penafiel Gran Resalte 2001

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is rich ruby color in the glass with great clarity. The nose presents pleasant aromas of blackberry, ripe plum, leather and tobacco. The taste is simply breathtaking, a building crescendo of black fruit at the outset, blackberry, plum and cherry that transitions effortlessly to some meaty notes of mocha and dark chocolate midpalate. ...
