Winemaker's Notes

In the year 1954 my father, Miguel Torres, was already seeking out the most prized red grapes of the region, Garnacha and Cariñena, to create a different wine that would express the authentic character of the land. This led to the birth of "Sangre de Toro", whose name is inspired by Baccus, Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "Son of the Bull".

Tasting Notes: Elegant ruby color, aromas with notes of red fruit jams predominate (cherry, blackberry, red plums), accompanied by earthy and roasting notes. On the palate it has a lush, smooth attack with rounded tannins and the plummy notes reappear. This wine is characterised by a long, fresh and elegant finish.

Serving suggestions: Perfect with stews, game, meat paellas and traditional mountain cuisine. Serve at 64ºF.
