From Spain’s northern region of Castilla y León comes the Bodegas Antidoto Ribera del Duero 2016 Tempranillo. Wine making in this area goes back 2000 years! The wine comes from incredibly old vines which produce a lively, fresh and spicy red with balanced tannins and acidity. Matured in 100% new 600 liter oak barrels that is very noticeable with the oak overtones. This wine will only get better. You can find this wine at Birdrock Fine Wines.
Do you know what the locals of Ribera del Duero call the Tempranillo — Tinto Fino. The grape must survive scorching summers and frigid winters which gives low yields but concentrated fruit.
