Wine tasting

Cherry-red with a violet rim, bright. Wild-berry and vanilla bouquet… high complexity. Very fresh, fruity, and juicy on the palate; unctuous and no roughness. Nice lingering aftertaste. Because of its tannic levels and artisanal manufacture, over time this wine can develop lees.

Winery

The wine is manufactured in rented premises but we own the silos, the equipment and the casks needed for carrying out all the traditional process.

  • Viticulture: This wine is made from Tinta de Toro grape from different vineyards aged 28 to 45. Soils have been selected in order to nurture its Toro character in keeping with fruits and alcohol content. Chalky, loamy-sandy soils, exploring exposure and orientation. From Venialbo to Toro, through Morales and La Boveda. In 2016, the persistence of high temperatures during a long and endless summer without storms or rains, has led to differences between alcoholic and phenolic maturity and a 15/30-day delay in the harvest date compared to the previous season.
