This is our main black grape variety and the one most often used in our quality- improvement experiments.
It is a fine, highly aromatic black grape.
As its Spanish name (temprano means early) suggests, it is a quick-ripening variety.
It grows in medium-to-large sized compact clusters.
The grapes are medium-sized, round and blue-black in colour.
The wines from this varietal are an intense ruby-red, well-balanced and with a smooth aroma of liquorice, strawberries and forest fruits.
