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.

  • Monte del Conde Crianza Ribera del Duero 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Selection...just terrificdark and inky, every thing settled in and smooth, plum-cherry jam-oak and a bit of leather. Wasn't expecting anything this good. 2nd Day, just as good. Really seemed more of a Merlot to me, oak instead of the earth and mineral normally sensed in other Tempranillos. Read More

    Beautiful rich color in the glass. Expressive nose of fresh lilies, strawberry, kiwi and suggestions of cotton candy. Welcoming aromas of bubblegum. Luscious and juicy acidity on the palate with a brightness. Flavors of watermelon, cranberry, pomegranate and strawberry drippings with an interesting tinge of green, like a streak of cilantro. ...
