Winemaker Notes

Numanthia style relies on a selection of exceptional un-grafted vineyards with more than 70 years of age. Through extreme grape concentration, fruit intensity and structure Numanthia expresses power, precision and persistence.

Bright red, with ruby and purplish highlights at the robe. Numanthia 2013 is an intense wine with cherry and fig aromas, a touch of black chocolate and black pepper, as well as light mint and liquorice notes. In the mouth, the wine is sharp on the entry, with firm and elegant tannins. Refreshingly acidic, on the palate it becomes a fleshy, balanced wine with a potent, unctuous evolution that offers great complexity. Its finish is long and persistent, with sophisticated pure cocoa notes.

Numanthia’s power and intensity call for robustly flavored dishes not easily overwhelmed. Meat, weather roasted or in a distinctive sauce, is a natural match while Peking Duck likewise complements the wine’s body and texture. Rich local cheeses such as Zamorano also go well with Numanthia. Castilian cooking majors on roasted meats, especially lamb. For an authentic combination, why not pair Numanthia with cordero asado, lamb cooked in an oven in a traditional way.

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
A red offering lots of vanilla, plums and light prune character on the nose. Some violet and stone undertones. Full-bodied and structured with ripe yet firm tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Drink or hold.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2013 Numanthia is a blend of the best terroirs in the Toro appellation. It was sourced from very old vineyards (70 to 100 years of age). It underwent a cold soak, prolonged maceration and aging in brand new French barriques that lasted some 16-18 months. It has abundant toasty aromas over a core of ripe cherries and plums, with an earthy touch. The palate is full-bodied with plenty of slightly dusty tannins and a dry finish.

Numanthia, Spain
Numanthia Winery Video

Numanthia is located in the Toro region of Spain. Its four vineyards are located along the south bank of the Duero River.

The wine is named after a legendary Spanish city that was destroyed (after 20 yrs of resistance) by Roman legions. It is to Spain what the hilltop village of Masada is to Israel: a monument of history. Its 40 hectares of land are covered with an abundance of elements derived from the disintegration of Pliocene grit, clay and limestone.

Numanthia's first vintage was produced in 1998 and received a 95-point rating from Robert Parker. Since then, the Toro region has been producing wines that have begun to rival those of Spain's richest wine-producing regions of Ribera del Duero, Rioja and Priorat.

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.
