Discover Tempranillo Wines
Tempranillo is a Spanish grape type that produces rich, full-bodied red wines with spicy and fruit driven flavors. Tempranillo is the most well-known grape variety in Spain, although it is most closely linked with the Rioja and Ribera del Duero wine regions.
With a low viscosity (in other words, the liquid isn't thick), Tempranillo has a strong and structured taste. When compared to other black wine types like Cabernet Sauvignon or Teinturier, Tempranillo grapes have somewhat thinner skins. The viscosity of the wine is mostly determined by the density of the skins during fermentation. So, if you prefer rich flavors without becoming syrupy, Tempranillo might be the wine for you!
Tempranillo thrives in areas that alternate between cold and hot throughout the growing season. It's a robust grape that can withstand high elevations and extended cold thanks to its fairly thick skin. This kind of climate may be found in Spain's Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Temperatures in these areas may range from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day, and 30 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit at night. This vine has evolved over ages to cope with the changes and produce a wine with a strong taste. The rocky topography in these areas also gives Tempranillo wines a mineral flavor.
