Ser Argentino. All about Argentina

Of pengos and wines

A specimen of excellent body, balanced acidity and very robust in the mouth.

Tempranillo is a variety of red grapes grown extensively to produce full-bodied wines in Spain, where it is native and considered native to  La Rioja .
Its name is the diminutive early, which refers to the fact that it ripens several weeks before most Spanish red  grape  varieties.

In the Iberian Peninsula it is used in mixtures and less frequently bottled as varietal wine. It is a grape of low acidity and low sugar content.
Tempranillos can be consumed young, but the most expensive are aged for several years in  oak barrels  .

Its aromas include fruity notes such as cherry,  plum  and spices (mainly cloves and vanilla), leather and tobacco can also be slightly detected.
It has a frank palate, interesting in young and velvety wine when it ages.

Tempranillo is a cataloged wine of medium body and many tasters come to compare it, in terms of its taste, to the  Cabernet Sauvignon , but it is located in the middle of the road between Pinot Noir and the  Syrah .

This wine can be combined with any type of food, from  meat ,  pasta ,  pizzas ,  spicy foods, which makes it a versatile wine to have in  house . This possibility of pairing is granted by the  acidity  of this strain.

Rapporteur Wines, is a line of wines and sparkling wines that has just launched the journalist and public relationist from Mendoza Fernando Gabrielli.

The “Skinny”, as everyone knows him, quotes: “Rapporteur started as a game, one morning in the office. My grandfather, Mario Gabrielli, was one of the first  winemakers  in  Mendoza  , and he was also very burrero, very fond of to horse racing, and he instilled us the two passions: that of wine, which we took from kids with soda in my house. And also that of race horses.”
To this, it is added that he has been the official rapporteur for the races of the  Mendoza Racecourse for more than 22 years.

This Tempranillo is made with grapes that are harvested in the  Uco Valley  and its  varietal  composition has 97% Tempranillo and 3%  malbec , aged for 16 months in French oak barrels in 30% new. A specimen of excellent body, balanced acidity and very robust in the mouth.

A grape that deserves to be taken into account and that in this bottle finds a very good expression of its strain, and that beyond the rapporteur's donkey passion, we can share.
