CUESTA GRANDE

CUESTA GRANDE

Cuesta Grande, Toro (Zamora) - D.O. Toro. Set at the heart of the Toro plateau, this parcel of Tinta de Toro is goblet-trained on deep, gravelly, poor soils. It is organically grown. Identified by François Lurton year after year, it is one of Toro's great terroirs, which produces the finest and most elegant expression of Tinta de Toro.
  • Variety

    100% Tinta de Toro.
    A variant of the famous Tempranillo, 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.

  • Location

    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.

  • Tasting notes

    Lovely colour of morello cherries. The nose is expressive with aromas of red fruits, cocoa and light notes of spice. On the palate it is round, structured and tannic.

  • The Vintage

    This year it rained considerably more than usual and the winter was milder than
    usual. We started harvesting on 3 October. As a result of this decision, the grapes
    arrived at the winery in excellent conditions. The wines have the best intensity that we have seen in recent years and a complex palate. 2013 will be characterised by lower alcohol content, a deep colour and a well-balanced palate. A very good year in Spain, despite the weather conditions.
