    Winemaker Notes

    This wine has a great robe and a profound color, an expression of its young age. It has an intense aroma in which one can find dark fruits such as blackberries and blueberries, mineral notes also appear, creating this fresh wine with complexity. In the mouth, again this wine dominates the fruitful sensations, perceived as a wine with body; though at the same time its leaves pleasant licorice sensations, contributed by the maturity of the grapes from which this wine is made.

    Fermentation in concrete vats with a 15,000 kg capacity, temperature controlled to avoid surpassing 24ºC, thereby maintaining the fruit as well as the freshness that characterizes this wine. The malolatic fermentation is also carried out in french oak barrels. This wine has not been filtered nor clarified using aggressive methods to preserve its natural characteristics.

    Toro has two ingredients that have always attracted the attention of Vintae's technical team. On the one hand, it is an area that traditionally has not interfered with the vineyard too much. On the other hand, there are old vineyards of extraordinary quality in the D. O. Toro.

    Thanks to the climate conditions, with low humidity, and sandy soils there is no need to apply any chemical treatments to avoid diseases as other places do. This may have contributed to the tradition of respecting the pace and allowing nature to play its role. The tradition is such that there is a firm commitment to organic wines and biodynamic agriculture. This philosophy matches our technical team’s perspective to perfection, which is led by Raúl Acha, and it is one of the factors that contributed to calling their attention to this area called Toro.

    So, convinced by the philosophy of respecting nature and his attraction to these extremely valuable vines, Raul Acha initiates a journey to select vineyards with aim of including Toro wines to Vintae's portfolio.

    Spain's remote, high elevation wine zone between the regions of Bierzo and Ribera del Duero produces intense, full-bodied reds made from Tempranillo, locally called Tinta de Toro. This local variant has adapted to the region’s climatic extremes and recognizing its potential, top producers from Ribera del Duero and Rioja have invested heavily in its vineyards.

    Notoriously food-friendly, long-lasting and Spain’s most widely planted grape, Tempranillo is the star variety of red wines from Rioja and Ribera del Duero. The Rioja terms Joven, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva indicate both barrel and bottle time before release. Traditionally blended in Rioja with Garnacha, plus a bit of Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano, the Tempranillo in Ribera del Duero typically stands alone. Somm Secret—Tempranillo claims many different names depending on location. In Penedès, it is called Ull de Llebre and in Valdepeñas, goes by Cencibel. Known as Tinta Roriz in Portugal, Tempranillo plays an important role in Port wine.
