Sofros “P&M” 2015
Tinto D.O. Toro
Surprises the coloring intensity after 28 months on new barrels. Bright flashes of violaceous tones confuses our eyes. Spicy fruits with some pipe tobacco, chocolate spicy point, mix of minerality and clay. Powerful entrance, without disturbing. Sweet tannins and a little sharpened by acidity. Surprising finding the fruit in perfect harmony with the wood again. Very complex and full in mouth, final of fantasy and pleasure. Due to its tannic charge and craftsmanship, the wine may present precipitation with the passing of time in the bottle.
