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.

  • Capotazo Toro Tempranillo 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A selection from Lot 18;I found their Tasting Notes pretty accurate: 'This is a dark, brooding and complex wine dominated by intense baked fruit notes of plum, black cherry and blackberry jam. Full-bodied, with grippy, mouth-coating tannins, the wine has shooting through it a zingy acidity. After just a few years in bottle it is starting to disp... Read More

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
