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.

  • Vega Sicilia Unico 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Huh, minkä hintainen viini... Appiukolla oli sitä pullo kaapissaan, nautimme sen sunnuntailounaalla lampaan kera. Voimakas mutta maukas viini, joka kyllä kaipasi lihaseuralaisen. Ei siis sovellu tissutteluun. Read More

  • Pradorey 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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

    Snoothrank:

    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
