A Spanish red grape variety par excellence from the heart of La Rioja and Ribera del Duero. It produces very fine and highly aromatic wines. It is the main variety in the TORO appellation.
The Toro appellation is spread over 2 provinces: the provinces of Zamora and
Valladolid. The landscape is composed of a plateau and a small valley toward the
river. The vines are located at an altitude of between 620 and 750 metres.
Nice deep red color. Very expressive nose, with berries fruit, caramel and vanilla notes. Mouth is rich, structured, with supple tannins. We find aromas of red fruits, vanilla and a slight hint of balsamic.
After an uneventful winter, spring arrived with less rain than usual, but budding
nevertheless occurred in mid- April as normal. May went by with no frost. Flowering went smoothly, but the summer continued to be dry, which meant that in general the grapes were smaller. We started in early October with very healthy grapes. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts went smoothly and the resulting wines are full of colour and with a structure and aroma typical of a good vintage.
