Castilla y Leon contains its own wine regions in the area inland from the Altlantic coast. Containing a variety of climates, its heart is more continental with hot dry summers and long cold winters. The region of Ribero del Duero translates as `the banks of the Duero`, which flows through Portugal`s Port region. Here the vines grow at altitude, with hot summer days and cool nights, perfect for the vine. The result are truly exciting wines of the highest quality. Rueda has risen to prominence with delicate and crisp wines produced from the Verdejo grape, using modern wine making techniques. Toro has altitude which allows the vines to benefit from warm days and cooler nights which produce blockbusting and bold wines.
Bodegas Vina Vilano is situated in the village of Pedrosa de Duero, in the province of Burgos, central Spain. The cooperative was founded in 1957, and currently own over 300 hectares of vineyards. These are planted with `Tinta Fina` and `Tinta del Pais`, two local strains of the Tempranillo grape.
This rich and intense oaked Reserva has won the prestigious `Tempranillos al Mundo` for Viña Vilano. The nose is scented with pepper, spice and vanilla with a complex palate of autumn berries and leather. Ample in the mouth, with a rounded and harmonious finish.
