Tempranillo from Spain

Actea Tempranillo 2012 was in our very last shipment from Vino Volo. Yes, we chose to give up the wine club for several reasons…at least for now.

Actea Tempranillo is a Vino Volo private label wine produced by the Jorge Ordonez Winery in Spain. According to Vino Volo, Ordonez imports the largest portfolio of Spanish wines to the U.S. This wine comes from central Spain’s historical La Mancha. Tempranillo is, of course, the country’s signature red.

Aromas of cherry and blackberry blend with earthy notes. This medium-bodied selection has bright red fruit flavors, along with a bit of cocoa and hints of herbs. It is mild and smooth with medium tannins and moderate acidity.

Not amazing, but a decent, drinkable wine.
