Winemaker Notes

A deep cherry color, high lamina, with violet colored notes in its border. Thanks to the barrel aging the wine acquired a very intense nose with mature black fruit aromas, well integrated with the toasted, spiced and smoked notes. Corpulent in the mouth with very mature and and round tannins that give its sweetness. In the long and persistent aftertaste appear once again mature fruit perfectly assembled with the roasted character of the wood.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Blackberry and cola aromas are infused with game and a touch of oak-based vanilla. A flush palate is packed to the brim, while this tastes of ripe black fruit and chocolate. The warm finish is loaded with fudge and cassis flavors, and overall this checks all the boxes for an excellent, modern red wine. Drink through 2025.
V 93
Vinous

Deep, lurid violet. Sexy, oak-spiced black and blue fruits, vanilla, woodsmoke and candied flowers on the highly perfumed nose. In a lush, broad style, offering sweet cassis, blueberry and mocha flavors that are sharpened by a late suggestion of cracked pepper. Closes very long, sweet and smooth, with youthful tannin's lending final grip. Raised in new French oak barrels for 16 months. Drinking window: 2023 - 2031

WS 91
Wine Spectator
Smoke and licorice notes frame red plum, loamy earth and graphite flavors in this firm red. Focused and harmonious, structured yet fresh, in a savory style. Drink now through 2025.

Matsu Winery Video
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.
