Sofros “P&M” 2016
Tinto D.O. Toro
Stunning coloring intensity after 28 months in new barrels. Shimmering flashes of bluish hues will marvel our eyes. Dark robe wine. Expressive, variety of fruit aromas, with subtle notes of wood, licorice and spices. Fresh on the palate, pleasant and polished tannins, fruit notes again, long finish. Deep.
