Tempranillo wine is mainly produced in Spain, but can also be found in other countries such as:
- United States
The high sugar content of the grapes in this variety results in a good alcohol content of around 14%. Sometimes more acidic varieties are added to balance out the lack of acidity. Tempranillo wine is fermented in oak or aged in French or American oak barrels to intensify and improve its flavor qualities. However, producing a completely dry wine from this grape can be difficult due to the many sugars in the fruit that are not processed into alcohol.
