Depending on viticulture and winemaking practices, Tempranillo can produce wines that range from light and lively to dark and tannic. This thick skinned, early ripening – “Tempranillo” stems from “temprano” which means early - grape grows in both cool and warm climate regions and excels in the Spanish regions of Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Tempranillo is routinely blended with other varieties, with the most popular blending partners being Grenache, Carignan and Cabernet Sauvignon.
