Food Pairings for Numanthia-Termes S.L. Numanthia Tinta de Toro Tempranillo
Any aspiring collectors should add a case of this to their stash. Numanthia comes from a different terroir with a different clone of Tinta de Toro. The vines for this cuvee range from 70-100 years of age with tiny yields of 1 ton of fruit per acre. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel followed by 19 months in new French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The wine is a glass-coating opaque purple with a killer nose of mineral pencil lead wild blueberry and blackberry liqueur that roars from the glass. On the palate the wine is full-bodied dense and already beginning to show complexity within its layers of spicy black fruits. There is immense power well-concealed ripe tannin and the well-delineated finish lasts for over one minute. This is a sensational effort which in a perfect world should be cellared for a decade and enjoyed over the following 25+ years. However the elderly among us should not feel guilty about opening a bottle now.
