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.
Intense dark in color and lovely concentration on the nose, with cassis and blackberry aromas. The palate is lively and lifted, with plenty of acidity and kick. Flavors of cassis and dark berries are balanced and toasty, subtle chocolate notes, firm tannins and a gritty edge define the finish.
The harvest was unusually early in 2017. Poor weather conditions had a significant impact on the vintage. The late April frosts greatly affected several Spanish winegrowing regions. This year, our vineyards were above all impacted by drought: less than 250 mm of rainfall in Rueda and 300mm in Toro. As a direct result, there was a sharp drop in the number of kilograms harvested and the gapes ripened unusually early.
