Ull de Llebre, Tinta del País, Cencibel, Tinto Fino – even in Spain Tempranillo comes under a rainbow of names. The diversity of that country’s soils and terroirs mean that it also comes in an equal rainbow of styles. Juicy cherries; lightweight, unoaked fresh wines; laden with tarry oak; elegantly mature with tertiary aromas. It’s a chameleon, one that adapts itself to blend with Garnacha, Cariñena and Graciano, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
