Winemaker's Notes

This is one of the most intense, pure and bright Tempranillo wines you'll ever taste. It is made from 80-100 year old vines, which produce grapes with unmistakably pronounced concentration and complexity! An incredible value, this wine has consistently high quality every vintage.

Here, the fresh, red berried, mineral character of Ribera shows through, with a slightly spicy, minty note. This is one of only a few Ribera wines where you can taste the "cut" and chewy, juicy Tempranillo flavors unburdened by oak. A crisp fruited wine with structure and substance, it's neither light nor unduly heavy. This would pair well with Thai beef salad, marinated Korean BBQ pork, Peking duck and meat or chicken dishes with a piquant play of spices.

Critical Acclaim

"A sensational value, this 2012 Tinto (100% Tempranillo) may merit an outstanding rating with another 4-6 months in bottle. It boasts a deep ruby/purple color, a beautiful texture, and a big, sweet bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, licorice and lead pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied with loads of fruit, a precocious appeal, ripe tannin and decent acidity..."
89 Points

"Bright ruby. Floral and peppery spice notes lift aromas of black raspberry and cherry. Fruity and supple on the palate, with fresh red berry and anise flavors sharpened by a touch of white pepper. Finishes dry and spicy, with dusty tannins and a hint of bitter herbs."

A nice wine. Softer and smooth, deep crimson, not quite open but seems to be close, fresh and clean taste. Not as good as the wonderful 2011, but at this price, who could go wrong. If I could find more this could become my favorite "everyday" wine.I cannot tell if it will improve with age but WA sees it developing more and they are hard to argue with!

Learn About Vinos Torremoron Map ItMap It

Torremorón, made in the small town of Quintanamanvirgo, is a great example of an artisanal, handcrafted wine rather than a commercial wine with no personality or soul. Just west of the villages of Anguix and La Horra and north of Pedrosa de Duero and Roa, Quintanamanvirgo is well situated in the north central area of Ribera.
