External Reviews for Tineta Ribera del Duero
Ribera del Duero, SpainTineta Ribera del Duero is a gorgeous red of 100% Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) from Bodegas Ordonez (also referred to as Bodegas Avante.) It comes from the famed Ribera del Duero region, where the Duero River has carved its path to the sea through the high central plateau of Spain, leaving behind alluvial soils. The vineyard source for Tineta is El Carril, where the soil is gravel, sand and clay chalk. The combination of poor soils, harsh climate and high elevation produces a grape with extraordinary depth of dark fruit flavors. This wine received a 91-point rating from Robert Parker, who called it "juicy, succulent and sensual." We call it a great red wine gem! Tineta Ribera del Duero is dark ruby/purple in color with a beautiful bouquet of blackberry, black currant, plum, and smoke. Medium-full in body with silky tannins, the palate offers rich flavors of blackberries, plums and spice. It is well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 4-5 years. The wine lingers impressively on the finish.Enjoy Tineta with roast pork, grilled lamb chops, steak, paella, and aged cheeses.
