Winemaker's Notes

The Telmo Rodriguez estate in Toro is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is both elegant and powerful. The 19th century lower-case "g" typeface that appears on all the Toro wines is transformed, and modernized, by a bull horn. Along with a few other notable winemakers, Telmo was one of the first to rediscover vineyards of decades-old, bush-trained vineyards. He was a major force in elevating Toro to one of the most in vogue wine regions of Spain. The distinctive red soils produce a Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo) with tremendous fruit concentration, ripeness, acidity, tannins and structure.

The wines from the region are quickly establishing a reputation for wonderful concentration and a distinctive, explosive fruit profile. Dehesa Gago, like Basa for white wines, has become one of the reference points in Span for superior quality at a value price. 100% Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo), this steel-tank aged wine is generous with its deep fruit, while showing a balance seldom seen in the region.

Style: Earthy & Spicy
Pair with: Beef
What a nice surprise this little wine turned out to be. Rushed home for a quick dinner, grilled tenderloin and yellow, red and green peppers...grabbed the first thing red I could find. In the cellar so long the label was hard to read. Great legs, and what a super match with the beef. Very drinkable, for once I think my timing was good. Considering the price I wish I'd bought a case
