Trad. Spain Part III: RIBERA DEL DUERO

We (Irish) we love Rioja. In recent years though, Ribera Del Duero has begun to creep up on this dominance. RDD is 100% Tempranillo (Tinta Pais). The wines are generally concentrated and powerful, and while oak is an important structural component, the best wines rely on freshness and purity to convey the region.
