RED VARIETIES: TEMPRANILLO

Texts: Marcelo Sola, Cristina Bozzoli - Photos: Palmiro Bedeschi

Tempranillo
This grape was originally grown in Spain, in the area of Rioja. Tempranillo is one of the most widespread varieties in Argentina; however, it had not been used in the making of fine wines until recently. International demand forced winemakers to rediscover the potential of this grape.
It produces wines of medium alcoholic content, well-balanced, aromatic and suitable for aging in wooden casks. With a frank palate, this wine has a velvety taste when aged. It has notes of wild fruit, black plums, cherries and raspberries.

Cluster: medium-sized, compact and elongated.
Grapes: they present moderate size, round shape and normal to hard skin. They are intensely black.
