Winemaker's Notes:

100% Tinta de Toro

The wine is a deep ruby red with an aroma both intense and complex with several layers of aromatics in this lively nose: first some extremely intense notes of red and black fruits (black cherries, raspberries, redcurrants and cassis), perfectly integrated with some sweet spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and black pepper), vanilla and toasted characters.

On the palate, impressive and beautiful expressions of dark fruits with concentrated and velvety tannins. This full bodied wine shows exceptional acidity revealing some chocolate, toasted and spicy notes. Extremely long finish highlighting the complexity and handcraft character of this wine.

About Numanthia:

Numanthia is located in the Toro region of Spain. Its four vineyards are located along the south bank of the Duero River.

The wine is named after a legendary Spanish city that was destroyed (after 20 yrs of resistance) by Roman legions. It is to Spain what the hilltop village of Masada is to Israel: a monument of history. Its 40 hectares of land are covered with an abundance of elements derived from the disintegration of Pliocene grit, clay and limestone.

Numanthia's first vintage was produced in 1998 and received a 95-point rating from Robert Parker. Since then, the Toro region has been producing wines that have begun to rival those of Spain's richest wine-producing regions of Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Priorat.
