All about tempranillo wine
What is tempranillo?
Born between the gorgeous landscapes of the wine region called Rioja in Spain, tempranillo wine has a sophisticated flavor profile, with notes of cherry, dill, dried figs, cedar and even tomato sauce. Oak-aged varieties feature distinctive notes of tobacco, dry leaves, dust and leather. Tempranillo can age for more than 20 years.
The grape that winemakers use to make this juicy red nectar is the fourth most common in the world, and it's one of the nine red noble grapes. While you'll mostly find red versions of tempranillo, a rare white variety, tempranillo blanco, will surprise you with its strong notes of tropical fruits.
How to serve tempranillo?
Just like merlot and other similar wines, such as sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo grape wine is food-friendly. Try aged versions with steaks, burgers and lamb. Young versions pair well with tomato-based sauces, baked pasta, polenta, chicken and roasted veggies. Alternatively, consider trying this fruity wine with Spanish or Mexican dishes.
Tempranillo needs to be served at its proper temperature. You should always enjoy tempranillo at 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit, which is just slightly below room temperature. Leave the bottle out of the fridge for a while before serving!
Does all tempranillo come from Spain?
Actually, varieties of tempranillo red wine hail from all around the world. In addition to Spain, countries including Portugal, Argentina, Australia, France and the U.S. produce it. Versions from the New World tend to have stronger notes of cherries and tomato sauce, while those from the Old World feature a distinctive leather aroma.
