Considered to be Spain’s noble grape, Tempranillo is a black grape variety known for producing an assortment of delicious wines that can range from complex and refined to dense and assertive. Although it can be found around the world, from Argentina to California, its most esteemed examples of Tempranillo still hail from its native country of Spain.
The VineCo Tempranillo is an elaborate medium-bodied red wine with flavors of red cherry and strawberry intermingled with hints of smoke and a moderate oakiness. This dry red wine boasts a relatively strong alcohol content at 13% by volume. The Tempranillo wine kit includes medium toast oak chips. Medium toast oak is the most popular toast level used in red wines as it imparts a complex balance of vanillin and spice along with a subtle oakiness. The oak chips also help build body and mouthfeel.
