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.

  • Pradorey 2006


    Decent color. Fairly tight nose but hints of tobacco, cherry, smoke. Full bodied with good mouthfeel. Falls a bit short on the midpalate. Smooth tannins, nice fruit. Falls between a new world fruit bomb and old work red. Might go better with food. Read More

  • Bodegas Y Viñedos Alión Ribera del Duero Reserva 1999


    PI. Rubi escuro, com bastante sedimentos mas brilhante. Nariz fresco, lembrando esmalte, aceto balsâmico, cereja, morangos, com um floral sutil. Ao contrário da Jancis, não notei nada que remetesse a aromas animais. Fruta limpa e fresca, alta acidez, pimenta branca, taninos numerosos e finos. Apesar de não ser dos mais elegantes, tem a personali... Read More

  • Bodegas Torremorón Crianza 2006


    After decanting and letting it breath a bit I pour my glass. The wine is a beautiful, bright violet/garnet color. The nose is a little red currant, cherry and mint with a good touch of old-world earthiness that I enjoy in my wines. The wine is medium bodied, good tannins and acidity delivering juicy raspberries and producing an "Ahhhh" of pleasure. Read More

    Wine review by Carlos Elizalde

  • Legaris Ribera del Duero Reserva 2001


    "Spicy and ripe, this Reserva's cinnamon and sweet blackberry aromas lead into a generous core of black fruit flavors, detailed with notes of tea leaves and sweet spices. Young and voluptuous, with hard tannins and strong acidity, this is a wine to decant for game." WA 93 Read More

  • Bodegas Emilio Moro Tempranillo Ribera del Duero 2004


    Love this stuff. I found it to be dense and chewy, definitely full bodied. Drank it without food, no problem. Definitely drink again. I enjoyed it more than Villacreces. Read More

  • Villacreces Crianza 2004


    "The 2004 Tinto is 86% Tempranillo, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Merlot fermented in barrel and aged in French oak for 16 months. Inky purple, it has an expressive bouquet of mocha/espresso, pain grille, graphite, wild blueberrys, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by a full-bodied, full-flavored, plush wine with layers of spicy black fr... Read More
