Tempranillo

Pronounced: Temp-ra-nee-yo

(aka Tinto Fino, Tinto del Pais, Ull de Liebre, Tinta Roriz, Aragones)

A lively red grape which produces deep-flavoured and full-bodied red wines. It is Spain's most famous grape (used, for example, in Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Navarra) and is also used in Portugal (in Alentejo and for Port). In Rioja, it is blended with Grenache (known as Garnacha in Spain). The flavours/aromas include tobacco, leather, spice.

It is a sensitive grape and is not an easy one to grow (suffering from frost and rot).
