Ribera del Duero in north-central Spain takes the native Tempranillo varietal to soaring heights. This noble grape, which makes soft and subtle wines in Rioja, is transformed into bold, luscious, fruit-driven, concentrated reds by Ribera's pioneering winemakers. The region is the ideal wine destination for those who love modern-style, new-world reds but are eager to explore European regions. Today's Three-Pack Feature, the 2016 Finca Villacreces Pruno Tinto Ribera del Duero, was sourced from grapes (Tempranillo plus a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon) grown near the famed Vega Sicilia property and is a TOTAL STEAL! For $15.40 per bottle, you will swear you are drinking a wine that is much pricier. Don't believe it? Check out the press!
91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Always a good value in Ribera and cropped from a fresher year, the 2016 Pruno has notes of licorice, dark berries and even some fresher red fruit. It has abundant, fine-grained tannins that require powerful food. 524,330 bottles and 2016 magnums produced. It was bottled in November 2017." (8/31/18)
91 points, Wine Spectator
"Smoky and loamy earth notes frame a core of black cherry and plum in this firm, dense red. Balsamic acidity balances muscular tannins, which yield to a floral, minerally finish. Drink now through 2028. 40,000 cases made, 5,000 cases imported." (9/30/18)
