Toro is a region known for powerful red wines. This 100% tempranillo, or in the region also called tinta de toro, is the epitome of a balanced wine from this appellation. The vineyards are located in San Román de Hornija, a village that lies against the Duero River. During the harvest there is a very strict selection and once on the domain a second selection, so that only the best fruit remains. The alcoholic fermentation lasts no less than 14 days and afterwards an aging in French wooden barrels and barrels, spread over 2 periods that last a total of 12 months. This wine is power and a prime example of innovative and classic vinification. In the nose we perceive ripe strawberry, blueberries and blackberries with spicy undertones and a hint of vanilla. In the mouth we are intoxicated by a marmalade of blue fruits, spices and tannins that are well present. If you like strong red wine, this is an absolute must. Serve in a wide glass and, if necessary, decant into a narrow carafe. health!
