Massive black fruit, and correspondingly large and seriously chewy, dry tannins. This wine needs some substantial food to cope with the latter. Love the finish. Drink now.
Wine Tasting Notes
Deep purple to the edge, aromas of toasty oak, graphite, balsamic, incense, and black fruits are followed by a dense, powerful Tempranillo. Rich, powerful and voluminous on the attack, a huge mouthful of crème-de-cassis concentration, silken and juicy in the mid-palate with excellent length and persistence.
About the Vineyard
The Tempranillo grapes for this wine are from very old vines of up to 100 years, trained in the traditional “vaso” system, and which produce very low yields. The vineyards are in the areas of El Pego and Villanueva de Campeán, within the province of Zamora, in the regions of Toro and Tierra del Vino respectively, and are planted on top layer of gravel over very sandy soils.
