100% Tinta de Toro.
A variant of the famous Tempranillo, a Spanish red grape variety from the heart of La Rioja and Ribera del Duero. It produces very fine and highly aromatic wines. It is the main variety in the TORO appellation.
The Toro appellation is spread over 2 provinces: the provinces of Zamora and
Valladolid. The landscape is composed of a plateau and a small valley toward the
river. The vines are located at an altitude of between 620 and 750 metres.
A beautiful cherry color.
An intense nose, with fine red fruit flavors, spices and woody notes.
A powerful and structured palate with velvety tannins. It is both complex and balanced with notes of fruit, cloves and black pepper and fresh notes of licorice and eucalyptus.
The 2012 season started with a very dry, cold winter. Bud break took place without any problems in mid-May. Spring frosts did not cause any trouble either and growth was uniform despite the lack of rain. For our top-of-the-range red, Campo Eliseo, we delayed the harvest by 20 days for the oldest vines, so as to obtain the best possible phenolic maturity in the grapes. The quality of the grapes was excellent thanks to very healthy conditions. This vintage was characterised by a lower alcohol potential than in other years and a more delicate structure, which will be partly compensated for by longer macerations, made possible by the superb phenolic maturity.
