Ribera del Duero is one of the most important wine regions in Spain. The region around the Río Duero river only became really known over the last 30 years. The exceptional climatic conditions on the Duero make the Tempranillo grapes grow smaller and the skins thicker. Therefore, the must is more concentrated and the wine acquires that typical aromatic spiciness that gives rise to the fame of Ribera del Duero wines. Due to its relatively recent history, we find mainly modern wineries that focus more on simple elegance.
The Tempranillo grape grown in the D.O. Ribera del Duero is also known as Tinto Fino or Tinta del País. Discover the trendiest wines of this region:
