Dehesa Gago Toro 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Like all the Telmo Rodriguez wines from Toro, Dehesa Gago is 100% Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo). Dehesa gago Gago is picked by hand from bush vines, and fermented in neutral cement casks and stainless steel. It is then aged for 4-6 months in cement tanks. The distinctive red soils produce a Tinto de Toro (the local clone of Tempranillo) with tremendous fruit concentration, ripeness, acidity, tannins and structure. Dehesa Gago is the wine Telmo has used to discover and understand the vineyards of Toro, a pure wine that showcases the fruit.

Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodríguez S.L.:

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 example of what people call stemmy tannin?) Medium to long length.

Strohgelbe Farbe, Aromen nach Zitrusfrüchten, Passionsfrucht, Kiwi, Holunder. Am Gaumen ein süffiger, leicht würziger mit exotischem Touch. Fruchtiger Abgang.

Rubinrote Farbe. In der Nase, fruchtige Noten. Ein autentischer, ländlicher Wein. Im Gaumen schöne Frucht, Frische mit einem eleganten Abgang.

Dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase schöne Fruchtnoten. Am Gaumen ein karaktervoller, fruchtiger und intensiver Wein. Schöner Abgang.
