Winemaker's Notes:

All the exuberant aroma traditionally found in an intense, ripe red wine, with a sensual background of fine spices in good balance with perfumed notes reminiscent of blackberries. Full, long finish on the palate. The blend of Garnacha and Cariñena grapes that produce Gran Sangre de Toro are grown in the coastal area of the Penedès. This wine goes well with stuffed peppers, game, and meat dishes with spicy or sweet and sour sauces.

About Torres:

In 1870, when the Torres family founded its wine-making and exporting company, they understood the importance of both respecting traditions and maintaining the utmost quality of their products. Today, thanks to this hundred year old commitment, Bodegas Torres is a strong leader in the Spanish wine and brandy industry.
