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.
Like all the Telmo wines from Toro, Dehesa Gago is 100% Tinto de
Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo). Dehesa gago Gago is picked by
hand from bush vines, and fermented in neutral cement casks and
stainless steel. It is then aged for 4-6 months in cement tanks.
