Meaning 'early ripener,' Tempranillo is a master of disguises at home in Spain — known as Tempranillo in Rioja, Navarra and Aragón, Tinto Fino in Ribera del Duero, Cencibel in the centre and Ull de Llebre throughout Catalonia. It is Spain's most noble variety, making stylish wines with strawberry and sour cherry flavors that combine perfectly with the flavors of oak in the Reserva and Gran Reserva wines. A small amount is also grown in Portugal and Argentina.

Spain is the perfect climate for growing the Tempranillo grape.
Perfect pair: Spicy prawn tapas.
