Ribera del Duero
As with it’s more famous neighbour, Rioja, the grape of Ribera del Duero is Tempranillo. Again, just as Rioja, the other influence is oak. Crianza is a wine that has been aged for a year in oak barrels giving it those toasty, vanilla notes, before ageing for another year in bottles to round out the wine before release.
It’s a clean, bright, intense cherry red colour with purple rim. A strong and sweet bouquet full of ripe berry aromas leads you into vanilla and slightly toasted notes. It’s a full bodied wine, with elegant tannin, softened by the oak barrels and balanced by good acidity and a long, deep and toasty finish.
