Deep, almost black, ruby red color with purple hues. Intense, almost explosive nose with lots of ripe black-red fruit, after which more roasted and complex notes such as coffee, cocoa and fresh leather are released. In the mouth it presents itself with a lot of body and finesse. The structure is noble, refined and with soft tannins. The long, impressive finish confirms its Nobel character.
Great and exciting pairing with regional dishes such as Lechaso Asado (Lamb roasted in wood oven) and Carne Gobernada (Roasted veal) or other hearty meat dishes. But also as a itself as a unique experience.
The climate in Toro is fairly extreme. Long, warm and dry summers. The winters can be very cold and in between teh seasons there is very limited rainfall. Temperature differences can also be large at night. Together with the poor soils, they determine the unique character of Toro.
This vineyard is over a hundred years old. Higher vineyard with sandy loam soil and clay in the lower layer that retains the rare precipitation.
100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). After strict selection of the hand-picked grapes, the juice is fermented at a low temperature (4°C) and followed by a long maceration (31 days). The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak (90%) and American oak (10%).
