The wine has a deep and dense colour with a garnet tint. Aromas of rich and varied notes of black cherry, jammy fruit, blackcurrant liqueur and chocolate. Round and full on the palate, with already well-integrated tannins, it is lifted by a multitude of flavours with touches of red berry fruit, blackberry, mocha and caramel. The lovely, long finish displays plenty of structure and lingering flavours, expressing all the richness of the wine's origins.
We recommend this wine to be served at a temperature of about 16 – 18oC.
This wine goes well with with intense flavoured meals like red meat and wild game, roasted meat, mushrooms, risotto and ripe cheeses.
The grapes are handpicked from the family vineyards with 80 year old vines. The wine has aged in 100% French oak barrels for 24 months and aged for another 24 months in the bottle. To this artisanal wine are no sugars and sulphites added.
The Spanish Denomination of Origin (D.O.) Toro is one of the rising stars of the Duero valley in the south-eastern corner of the Zamora province, right next to Rueda and Ribera del Duero. Wine has been made here for 800 years and therefore it belongs to one of the oldest wine regions in the world. Toro is a small and high quality wine region and knows their own indigenous variety Tinta de Toro, the local variant of the tempranillo grape.
