The Portuguese Tempranillo

Aragonez, also known as Tinta Roriz in northern Portugal, is a red varietal that is the Portuguese equivalent to the Spanish Tempranillo.

Arragonez is a key varietal used in the making of Port wine as well as many Alentejo wines. With its thick, dark-skinned berries, it typically produces well-structured fruity wines with softer tannins and lower acidity.
