I like unoaked #Toro and #Roble Toro wines when they’ve aged in the bottle for at least 18 months. The tannins smooth out and the fruit stays strong and pure. This is an affordable and juicy #Tempranillo wine. My suggestion, look for older vintages or cellar it awhile

First of their three bottles line up, young and fruity. Fun bottle to drink

Tart raspberry and cherry. Light plus body with medium acidity and a hint of sweetness. Unfortunately a flabby finish.

Сочно, микстура от кашля, старое сливовое варенье, замша, ваниль. Вкус не такой интересный, простовато, чуть разбалансированно.

A dark crimson plum colour with a softer, lighter bodied style. Lower acidity on the approach with notes of cherry, dried fig and cedar. Finishes with dried leaves and chocolate notes. A winner for the price!
