If you're searching for bold reds, look no further. Ribera del Duero answers the call with aromatic Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) wines that seduce with their intensity and balance. Miniscule quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Garnacha, Malbec and Merlot are also grown, although these varieties are used almost exclusively for blending. You can expect a top Ribera del Duero to be above all structured, with good body and powerful fruit flavors that rub shoulders with none-too-subtle woody notes.
In the last 30 years, Ribera del Duero has risen up to challenge Rioja for the crown of Spain's greatest wine region. Once known only as the home of Vega Sicilia it now boasts numerous bodegas of outstanding quality, from Pesquera to Condado de Haza. The region was granted its DO status in 1982, and today has over 170 wineries and more than 18,000 hectares of vines. No white wines are permitted.
Let's get together and give these wines a try! Plan to spend around $20-40. Please bring 4 glasses and some food to share. Lilliana will be cooking a Spanish or Mexican main course using a family recipe that will be sure to please.
Note: Lilliana has two small dogs at her house.
Greetings! I live in MetroWest, am single again and trying to move closer to Boston.
Born and raised in the Boston area. Looking to enhance my knowledge of wine!
I love wine and would like to learn more with tastings among other wine lovers.
Looking forward to the evening. I have just joined Bentley and moved to Boston from Central PA.
