Profile: Best known as the preeminent grape in red Rioja, and capable of extremely high quality elsewhere. Tempranillo has many local forms throughout Spain, with slight variations between cultivars grown in Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Toro. Typically the wines are deeply crimson in colour with suitably matched intensity of flavour and vegetal freshness. Elevated acidity and moderate tannins add structure, and Tempranillo is another variety which matches very well to oak maturation. In Rioja the flavours are sometimes covered by rich American oak character, however more producers are eschewing heavy oak and long maturation in favour of freshness.
Classic Regions: Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Toro (Spain)
Hailing from La Mancha in central Spain, these wines are clean with good freshness, juicy fruit, low alcohol and very drinkable.
