Spain’s signature red grape, Tempranillo,
goes by the alias Tinta del País in Ribera del
Duero, where this firm red is from.
What You Need To Know
Bodegas Ontañón is known for its
wines from Rioja, where the Pérez Cuevas family has been
turning out cherry-rich, Tempranillo-based reds for five
generations. About a decade ago, they established an outpost in
Ribera del Duero, a more recently famous, Tempranillo-focused
region that occupies a high plain southwest of Rioja. Instead of
starting from scratch, they purchased a well-established vineyard.
Of the two wines they make from it, this entry-level bottling
comes from its younger vines (which are still about a quarter-century
old). Their grapes give this red its deep fruit flavors and
alluring spice and earth notes.
