Winemaker's Notes:

The Tinta de Toro varietal is a clone of the Tempranillo varietal, but it has a thicker skin, lower acidity, and deeper blue-black color. Tinta de Toro produces bolder colored red wines compared to Tempranillo, with powerful tannins.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Allegro con Spirito:

Owner Juan Antonio Fernandez acquired vineyards from 1996 to 2000, which range in age from 30 to 100 years old, and started his bodega in 2000. His wife is in charge of the bodega (with lots of input from Juan Antonio), and Juan Antonio is in charge of the vineyards. All of the harvesting is done by hand in the early morning, and the grapes are brought to the bodega by mid morning. All movement of wine in the bodega is done by gravity with no mechanical pumping. The aging process in barrels is done in underground cellars below the bodega.
