Spanish Ribera Del Duero Red
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.
This specific grape blend makes these wines very delicious, but their popularity slipped drastically in the 1970s. Extremely long barrel aging and old winemaking practices made the wines extremely inconsistent. Even bottles in the same vintage could be very different.
