The limestone-rich soils around the Júcar
River in central Spain give this Tempranillo its
unique elegance and perfume.
What You Need To Know
The wine denomination of Ribera
del Júcar was created in 2003, when its unique terroir demanded
that it be recognized separately from the massive appellation
of La Mancha, which surrounds it. While its climate is typical of
central Spain—hot, dry summers and cold winters—this locale’s
pebbly, alluvial soils over clay-limestone substrates are perfect
for Tempranillo, allowing that grape variety to make rich,
concentrated wines with uncommonly high-toned aromas and a
surprisingly elegant structure.
