    Ribera del Duero is in the province of Castile and Leon. Massive
stone castles stand as fortresses a top the highest ridges.  The

protrude from the rough ground.

    The Ribera del Duero best reds are deeply concentrated, fleshly,
ripe, and structured, without being aggressive, tannic, or alcoholic.
