Ribera del Duero
Spanish Wine - Red Wine
The Duero (known as the Douro in Portugal) is a river that runs out of the Pyrenees in Northern Spain through Portugal to the Atlantic Ocean.
On the Spanish shores of the Duero is one of the finest wine growing regions of Spain, the Ribera del Duero. The primary grape variety is Tempranillo, often known there as Tinto Fino. The Tinto Fino is traditionally blended with small amounts of Garnacha, Cabernet (Sauvignon and Franc) and/or Merlot.
