Ribera del Duero is an important wine zone in Castilla y León, that is now challenging Rioja as the leading wine-producing region in Iberia. A continental climate, with a high diurnal temperature variation, helps to grow grapes of a very high quality. Rich and meaty on the palate, the wine shows intense aromas of strawberries, blackberries, chocolate and vanilla. Complex and concentrated with a subtle hint of spice. A really gutsy wine that would love being paired with roast suckling pig, braised lamb shank or venison.
