Rippa Dorii Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Roble - Boutinot

Rippa Dorii Ribera del Duero Tempranillo Roble 2021


Rippa Dorii

The Roble represents the entry point for the Rippa Dorii range. This is a wine which compares favourably to other wines which are twice the price - the style is full-flavoured as is typical for Ribera del Duero, however the tannins and the oak are well-crafted, and give a wine which has fantastic drinkability.

Meet the producer

Rippa Dorii is an Ontañón Family project, producing wines from two of Spain's most important wine regions...



The Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo) vines are over 15yrs of age, and grow in a number of sites near Fuentecén. After a first selection of grapes in the vineyard, they undergo a pre-fermentation maceration for 3 days. Alcoholic fermenation takes over 14 days at 21- 23ºC. Malolactic fermentation is induced duing the latter stage of the alcoholic fermentation. The wine then matures for 7 months in new oak - 40% American, and 60% French with varying levels of toast.

Tasting notes

Aromatically this has a really inviting and vibrant fresh fruit expression of dark cherries, red plums, baking spices, with gently floral notes. The palate focuses on fruit but with enough tannin to give structure, a good length finish, and gentle oaky notes.

Food match

Enjoy with richly-flavoured pasta dishes such as lasagna or spaghetti bolognese, or ribs and burgers.
