D.O. Toro / El Pillo
El Pillo Viñas Rebeldes
El Pillo is a very brave young man, with a haughty disposition and who, on a moonless night, wanted to pay tribute to all the farmers by making the skies burn. That September night and in the middle of the harvest, El Pillo stole some explosives from a tunnel under construction and using cardboard reels he assembled a hundred and one rockets. At midnight, and after continuously ringing the church bells, he launched his entire arsenal from its highest point.
No one would forget the darkness broken into pieces by that lavish flash of lights and colors. The brightness lasted so long that all the farmers saw from afar for the first and last time the beauty and nocturnal splendor of their vineyards. This wine honors all of that.
Dark cherry-colored wine with garnet edges. It is rich in aromas of red and black fruits, with spicy and toasted notes. On the palate, it is powerful, with polished tannins, and very elegant.
It pairs perfectly with meat dishes and flavorful tapas.
Unique hand-picked grapes from singular and selected vineyards. The malolactic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels, which imparts an intensity and a subtle, elegant structure.
