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.
