Ribera del Duero is a name that commands respect in the wine world. This region, located along the Duero River in Castilla y León, produces wines that are bold, powerful, and full of character. Ribera del Duero wines are primarily made from the noble Tempranillo grape, known locally as Tinto Fino or Tinta del País. These wines exhibit flavors of ripe dark berries, vanilla, and a hint of tobacco. The vineyards, situated at high altitudes with a continental climate, experience dramatic temperature shifts that contribute to the grapes' concentrated flavors and balanced acidity.
