The Tempranillo black grape variety is the most important grapevine in Spain. From it, comes many of the most notable spanish red wines. It has other names, such as Tinta del País, in Ribera del Duero; Tinta de Toro, in Zamora; or Cencibel, in Castilla-La Mancha.  The  Tempranillo grape variety needs lots of sunshine to ensure optimum quality. The wines that are made ​​from this grape are fresh and dry in mouth.
