Tempranillo is a black skinned grape that is used to make full-bodied red wines. It is primarily grown in the Rioja region of Spain but can also be found in Portugal. Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Australia, and California. The wines made from this grape are ruby red in color and are known for having aromas and flavors of berries, plum, tobacco, vanilla, and leather. It is highly susceptible to pests and disease so it is often grafted onto hardier rootstock.
