Vega Saúco Adoremus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adoremus means adoration. This wine is the tribute of the Gil Luna Family to Toro, to the adoration that we feel for its soil and its variety, Tinta de Toro.

Equally the label has a very special symbolism of transmission of tradition from parents to children, the hands at the top of the label are Wences's hands and the ones at the bottom are Patricia´s. Also the pebbles are those of the surface of one of our more representative vineyards.

 

Variety: 100% Tinta de Toro

Vineyards: blend of grapers cominfg from our vineyards Pago Valdecarretas, Ballesteros & La Pedrera.

Vineyards age:  older than 65 years.

Average altitude: 725 m.

Density / plantation frames:  100% bush-vines 3x3 square (900-1000 vines/Ha)

 

Vinification:

Manual harvest. Selection process in the vineyard as well in the winery.

24 months in oak barrels, 70% French & 30% American.

24 months of maturation in bottle.

Sulfites content is minimum, just the necessary. Minimal quantities are added during vinification due to the tannin protection during wine life (higher content of tannins in Tinta de Toro). Experienced with reserva wines with more than 25 years old.

 

Wine Tasting:

 

 

Dark cherry colour, very pleasant and fine aroma (cocoa, pipe tobacco, black pepper....).

In mouth it is round, oily, tasty, powerful but with sweet tannins. Very persistent.

Very elegant wine.

This wine will continue evolving during a minimun of 10-15 years.

 

Pairing: red meet, cheese ...(food with a high content of proteins)
