Milcampos Tempranillo 750ML
A thick-skinned variety with a high anthocyanin count that makes for deep-colored wines with moderate tannins, Tempranillo is well suited to the demands of the modern wine consumer. While it lacks its own idiosyncratic flavor profile, the wide range of aromas detectable in Tempranillo-based wines gives it a charm in and of itself, with tasting notes ranging from strawberries, blackcurrants and cherries, to prunes, chocolate and tobacco. The former three notes typically come from younger examples from cooler climates, while the latter three develop with increased vineyard heat and age. Good with roasted red peppers stuffed with rice and morcilla blood sausage, Brazilian pork and bean stew (feijoada), roast lamb with redcurrant jelly.
