  • Region

    Brimming with tradition, Toro D.O. is an exciting wine region nestled in the heart of Castile and León, in the northern Spanish province of Zamora. This D.O.  is next door to Rueda’s territory, and not far from Ribera del Duero and Rioja’s. It is one of Spain’s best kept secrets. Its wines  inherit  a long history, dating back to Roman settlements. In the middle ages, the wines enjoyed Royal privileges that allowed them to be exclusively sold in towns and cities. Even Christopher Columbus is said to have taken the wines of Toro on his expeditions to America. Toro qualified for the Denominación de Origen status in 1987. With its ancient vines, it is certainly one of Spain´s most promising regions for the production of red wines of impressive quality.

  • Best Served

    Serve between 16-18ºC. We recommend that this wine is decanted first for at least half an hour after serving.

  • Technical Information

    The grapes are carefully selected and go through a period of cold maceration to allow the juice and skins to be in contact. The fermentation then takes place at a controlled temperature of 25°C. The entire process is designed for maximum fruit expression and nice and polished tannins. The wine is aged in the barrel for at least 6 months and 3 months in bottle.

  • About this wine

    “Medicinal black fruit aromas are a little burnt and brambly, while the palate is snappy, acidic and tannic, with tomato, raspberry and oak-driven creaminess. Finishes dry, with a lasting flavor of vanilla that tempers overriding acidity.” Wine Enthusiast Magazine 2015
