Frequently Asked Questions

What is Spanish Tempranillo Wine?

Spanish Tempranillo wine is a red wine made primarily from the Tempranillo grape, which is indigenous to Spain. It is the dominant grape variety in many of Spain's most famous wine regions, including Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The name Tempranillo derives from the Spanish word 'temprano', meaning 'early', a reference to the grape's ability to ripen earlier than other Spanish varietals. Tempranillo wines are cherished for their full-bodied nature and complexity. They often exhibit flavors of dark fruits like cherries and blackberries, complemented by earthy undertones, leather, and tobacco. Aging in oak barrels is a common practice, which imparts additional vanilla, spice, and smooth tannic structure to the wine. The grape's thick skin contributes deep color and robust tannins, making Tempranillo wines excellent candidates for aging. Over time, these wines can develop sophisticated flavors and a silky texture that appeals to wine enthusiasts around the world.

Ribera del Duero, on the other hand, experiences more extreme weather conditions, which contribute to the production of more robust and intensely flavored Tempranillo wines. The high altitude of the region also plays a critical role, offering a significant diurnal temperature variation which is crucial for maintaining the grapes' acidity and developing flavor complexity.
