Like all crianza wines from Spain’s Ribera del Duero region, this juicy red is made from the Tempranillo grape.
What You Need To Know
Tempranillo may not be as familiar to Americans as Cabernet or Merlot, but it should be. Best known as the dominant grape of Spain’s two premier red wine regions, Rioja and Ribera del Duero, it makes delicious, medium- to full- bodied reds. The wines can range from earthy, old-school bottlings to flashy, powerful wines brimming with black-fruit flavors. This example from Ribera comes from Bodegas Lleiroso, a fairly new winery (founded 2005) from two winemakers, Pascual Herrera and Alberto Cobo. It tacks a midcourse between modern and traditional styles, with ripe fruit and well-balanced oak.
