Spain may well be considered the “poor relation” to France and Italy when it comes to wine but don’t be fooled by this. Spain is the most widely planted wine-producing nation and the third-largest producer of wine in the world after Italy and France. There are some seriously great wines to be found there offering a real value for money experience. Open the Duque de Montebello and you are already on that journey of discovery. This 100% Tempranillo from Extremadura, a western Spanish region bordering Portugal, will not disappoint. As the dominant grape for red Riojas, Tempranillo plays a similar role to Cabernet Sauvignon, so expect a wine full of dark fruits and a medium to full-bodied experience which will not disappoint.
