Tempranillo is an important grape in the Spanish wine industry. It has a large role in the wines of Rioja where it is used to make medium to full bodied reds in a savoury style.
This is a seriously smart wine. Lovely fruit and an elegant palate. If there’s half a bottle open at the end of the day you can bet your bottom dollar the staff will claim it will be oxidised by morning and offer to take it home and dispose of it quietly.
