D.O. Toro / Ouno
Ouno is wine that has been elaborated from Tinta de Toro grapes from certified organic vineyards. Youth and environmental concern combine in a wine that displays the characteristic expression of this interesting grape variety.
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 ruby red in colour with purple hues. An inviting aroma of fresh ripe, cherries, raspberries and red currants paired with sweet mineral notes. On the palate, juicy raspberry fruit, soft, sweet tannins and a lively, well-integrated acidity. A refreshing and harmonious wine with a medium body and fruity finish.
A perfect companion to beef dishes, game, poultry, sausages, pasta with a spicy tomato sauce or pizza.
The grapes are carefully selected and handpicked before undergoing a long, cool maceration period to extract their maximum expression. Fermentation takes place at 26-28ºC. A process of micro-oxygenation yields maximum fruitiness and sweetened tannins.
