Taste of Tempranillo
Tempranillo is to Spain what Sangiovese is to Italy. Tempranillo offers a handy gamut of red and dark fruit, spice, earth and tobacco notes. More importantly, if grown well it has the tannin structure to make for truly serious, age-worthy reds - whether alone or blended with fruitier varieties like Garnacha (Grenache). Tempranillo dominates the blend of classic Rioja wines, in addition to Ribera del Duero, while remaining important in the rest of Spain. From classic styles to modern chic there is a wine for all tastes in this delicious selection.
