Winemaker Notes

Cherry color with violet tones. There are fruity aroma and the palate highlights the red and black fruit notes, like strawberries and blueberries notes. There is some mineral and earth notes here as well. This wine is elegant, powerful, and enveloping.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2011 Victorino is produced with Tempranillo grapes from 35 hectares of ungrafted, old vineyards in the villages of Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente, which fermented with yeasts selected from their own vineyards and aged in new French oak barrels for 18 months. This is the fruitier and more approachable of the three wines I tasted from them, with aromas of clean, ripe, terse fruit, with hints of violets and a pinch of spices mixed with echoes from the soil. The palate is full-bodied, with glossy tannins, dense and ripe, with very good acidity, balanced and elegant. It's approachable, but should develop more complexity with time in the bottle.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
A firm structure supports the plush texture of this rich red. Savory notes of espresso and anise mingle with a deep core of plum, black olive and mineral. Not that expressive now, but harmonious nonetheless. Best from 2016 through 2026.

Wine Enthusiast
Dense intitial aromas suggest rubber on top of blackberry. In the mouth, this Tempranillo is deep as a trench, with layering and firm tannins. Flavors of toasty oak, blackberry, coconut and herbs dance together like a world-class ballet troupe, while the finish is textured, toasty and loaded with power. Drink from 2015–2021.

Teso la Monja, Spain
Image of winery
After several years had passed of choosing the best vineyards and, at the same time, making some new plantations in privileged places, it was in 2007 when, with the skill of 10 successful years cultivating vineyards and producing famous wines, the winery Teso La Monja came about.

A wine region influenced by the presence of the river Douro, complemented by softly rugged-rolling terrain and a special microclimate with superb conditions for the growth of the grapevine. An area where the Eguren family has acquired very specific high quality north facing vineyards in the villages of the Zamora province Valdefinjas, Toro and Villabuena del Puente.

In these vineyards only one variety, the Tinta de Toro, native of this area, is grown. This variety has very low yields (around to 1,500 Kg / Ha) of small clusters and berries that synthesise a large amount of polyphenols, which makes it a favorable choice to make wine with structure and high aromatic concentration.

Image for Spanish content section

Known for its bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy red wines, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Most planted and respected is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
