Made from only the very best Tempranillo grapes (also known as Tinta de Toro) at our prestigious Pagos del Rey winery located in Morales de Toro. The grapes are handpicked in October.
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.
Deep raspberry in colour with purple tones. Fruity and fresh on the nose with hints of raspberry and strawberry, and a touch of spice. Fresh and pleasant on the palate, with good acidity and a long finish.
Perfect with salads, seafood, pork and white meats.
Chilled between 8-10ºC
After the selection of the handpicked grapes, the skins are kept in contact with juice for a period of 6-8 hours in order to achieve the maximum aromatic potential. Following this, the fermentation process takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 16ºC.
