The Toro region's grape is the Tinta de Toro, a dark, tough-skinned variety from the Tempranillo family and one of the very few to resist the phylloxera blight that ravaged European vineyards in the late 19th century. Sometimes called "the blackest of black grapes", the Tinta de Toro is only found in this part of Spain. Its small berries are rich in tannin and, when picked at optimal ripeness, have exceptionally concentrated fruit flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
Rich, bright red with intense ruby glints.
This intensely aromatic wine displays black fruit, particularly blueberry and black currant, accompanied by notes of fig and sweet cream pastries. Hints of black pepper and clove add spice to the toasted hazelnut aromas.
An intense, robust and vivacious wine with phenomenal structure. Impressive fruit expression together with perfectly ripened tannins lead to a meaty mouthfeel. A long and persistent finish of tobacco leaves and balsamic notes highlight the complexity and handcrafted character of this wine.
