Brooding, savoury, muscular
Toro has been making headlines in recent years, mostly due to a small group of winemakers who have rediscovered the stunning old vines of this venerable region. Thankfully, their interest has reinvigorated the area and many of these gnarled old bush (gobelet) vineyards are being saved.
This Tempranillo is smoky and brooding with espresso, black fruits, iodine and bittersweet chocolate and roasted spices, a hint of patchouli rounds it out. It is fresh with a charry character; it is restrained yet muscular with notable bitterness, which makes it a good food pairing wine.
Pair roasted meats, hard cheeses, grilled eggplant and Portobello mushrooms.
