About This Wine:

That’s the Spanish expression for dining out by eating tapas. Dining like this is just as much about being social as it is about the food. The locals do not stay at one place, but shift bars and seek out the specialty at each location.

And no matter where they go, they’re likely to wash down that specialty with a glass of Tempranillo, the best-known red wine variety in Spain. “Temprano” means early in Spanish, and the name Tempranillo refers to the early time at which the grapes typically are harvested. Tempranillo also is known as Tinto Fino in Ribera del Duero, Cencibel in La Mancha and Ull de Llebre in Catalonia.

Tempranillo grapes produce fresh and fruitful young red wines, but it shows best when aged in oak, as beguiling spice notes are revealed. At Alvaro Cristobal, winemaker Consuelo Delgado crafts a Tempranillo that is fruit-forward, spicy and perfect for accompanying tapas.
