Learn about the differences between Rioja & Ribera Del Duero in a great article from Adrienne Smith from Food and Wines of Spain, she writes:

"When Spanish wine regions face off, everyone’s a winner. Tempranillo has been a buzzword in international wine circles for decades, if not centuries, as the star grape behind what is undoubtedly Spain’s most famous wine region, Rioja. This native Spanish grape is also grown in the neighboring region of Ribera del Duero, an exclusively red and rosé wine-producing area where this noble grape is sometimes referred to as Tinta del País or Tinta fino.

In both regions, Tempranillo yields red wines of outstanding quality that have an excellent capacity for long term aging, as well as noteworthy elegance, a brilliant hue and a fruity palate. However, despite the proximity of these northern Spanish regions, Tempranillo takes on different nuances and characteristics in each thanks to influences like climate, soil and wine making traditions. So, how do you tell them apart? And more importantly, which Tempranillo should you drink when and why? "
