  • Tempranillo is indigenous to Spain and is the country’s most-planted variety. It has thick skin and medium acidity and requires sufficient warmth to develop its signature aromas. In order to maintain acidity during growth to produce a well-balanced wine, the best sites must have a high diurnal temperature range. The best examples of these sites can be found in the high-altitude locations of La Rioja and Castilla y León. Here producers such as Artadi, Pingus, Numanthia-Termes, and Vega Sicilia make full-bodied, age-worthy wines with concentrated flavors of red cherry, tobacco, cured meat, and dried figs, as well as dill and vanilla from long periods in American oak.

    Tempranillo’s savory flavors pair well with cured meats (particularly Spain’s famous Jamón Iberico de Bellota), roasted vegetables, barbeque-grilled meats, smoky dishes, corn-based dishes, and Mexican cuisine.
