Certified Origin Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is a Certificated Origin, in Spanish ”Denominación de Origen” (D.O.) for wines located in the country’s northern plateau and is one of eleven ‘quality wine’ regions within the autonomous community of Castile and León. It is also one of several recognised wine-producing regions to be found along the course of the Duero river.

The region is characterised by a largely flat, rocky terrain and is centred on the town of Aranda de Duero, although the most famous vineyards surround Peñafiel and Roa de Duero to the west, where the regional regulatory council is based.

The wines of the D.O. Ribera del Duero are mainly reds, although there are also rosés. The most characteristic grape variety is the so-called “Tinta del país“, known in the wine world as Tempranillo, which constitutes more than 90% of the production. According to the regulations of the Regulatory Council, for a wine to qualify for the appellation of origin it must include at least 75% of Tempranillo in its preparation. In total, no less than 95% of the grapes must be Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec. Garnacha and Albillo grapes are allowed, but in small quantities.

There are other similarities between Rioja and Ribera del Duero. Whereas the wines are quite distinctive as a result of significant differences in terroir, both regions produce wines selected for long aging with highly complex vinification procedures, producing intense, extremely long-lived wines emanating from largely limestone soils. Wines are classified as much for their longevity as their grape quality, and Ribera del Duero produces some extremely well-aging wines. The aging requirements for Ribera del Duero are the same used in Rioja. Wines labelled as “Crianza” must age two years with 12 months in oak barrels. “Reserva” wines must be aged at least three years with at least 12 months in oak barrels. The “Gran Reserva” labelled wines must spend 5 years aging prior to release, two being in oak barrels.
