Altitudes of as much as 900 metres above sea level are what allows Ribera del Duero wines to project a certain freshness, despite their undoubted oomph (that's thanks to hour upon hour of hot sunshine during the summer). Top Ribera reds can also be pretty expensive. This from Bodegas Tionio thankfully isn't. Harvested by hand relatively early due to the really hot and dry 2015 summer, from their 21-year-old Peñafiel vineyard at an altitude of 850 metres. The organic Tempranillo (or Tinta Fina as they call it here) was aged for 6 months in American and French oak barrels of first, second and third use. Low added sulphur. Soft tannins, a powerful, earthy and long-lasting taste, with blackberries, raspberries and some toastiness from the oak.
