Toro Wine

 

Toro is a region located within Castilla-y-Leon, in the Zamora province, just above the Duero River, which becomes the Douro in Portugal. This is another region that began wine-making early on, in the first couple of centuries B.C. It’s known for big, rich, concentrated styles with robust tannins. The main grape is Tinto del Toro (a.k.a. Tempranillo), often blended with Garnacha. This region is famous for producing the cult wines Numanthia, Termanthia and Termes. 
 
Some whites are also produced from Malvasia and Verdejo.

  • Yep, a bit clunky as always. I haven't had most of those wines but I've ... make massive wine, like say Toro, you may want to make a bit of rosado so you have something for those days when you want a lighter wine. You may end up with something nearly a light-bodied red. Moreover, in some places it was long a common practice to blend reds and wh... Read More

  • Dehesa Gago 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of fresh blackberry and plum notes - kind of jammy on the nose, akin to beaujolais. Dark ruby colour. Described as a "rambunctious wine" by the wine maker, we found this one to be deep and acidic on the palate with fruit, some mint, and rough tannin. This wine doesn't get any oak, even though we all swore we tasted it (this might be a good ... Read More
