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.

  • 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.
