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.
The wine has a deep and dense colour with a garnet tint and an ample, generous nose that opens on rich and varied notes of black cherry, jammy fruit, blackcurrant liqueur and chocolate.
Round and full on the palate, with already well-integrated tannins, it is lifted by a multitude of flavours with touches of red berry fruit, blackberry, mocha and caramel.
The lovely, long finish displays plenty of structure and lingering flavours, expressing all the richness of the wine's origins.
