Rioja may be the most famous region in Spain, but Ribera del Duero is no slouch. These classic wines are made mostly from the grape Tempranillo.
Ribera del Duero wines are known for being strong, dark-colored wines filled with dark fruit, tobacco and vanilla flavors.
The sensual wines of Ribera del Duero are dark, brooding, and exciting. They are famous for taking the traditional Spanish grape Tempranillo and blending it with Bordeaux grapes Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This practice makes wines that are strong, dark and beautiful.
