Toro’s wines have always been noted for the enormous strength and personality of the Tinta de Toro, a variety from which Raul Acha, Vintae´s winemaker, also had the intention of extracting an elegance and smoothness that would open these wines to a wider audience. The challenge was to make Toro wines that combine the area’s traditional strength and a smoothness and elegance adapted to the tastes of the current consumer.

Tasting notes This is a corpulent wine also having a lot of finesse, with an intense nose having notes of chocolate, black fruits and vanilla. In the mouth the taste is striking, being predominantly round and silky, very unctuous with subtle hints of the glycerine. Touches of fruits linger in the after taste as do mineral notes. This is a full body wine yet at the same time very easy to drink.
