This has an assertive, brash core of fleshy dark berries and plums. The palate has punchy, convincing blackberry flavor. Dense, fleshy and really delicious. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. James Suckling
This wine is made from organic Toro grapes from the greatest slope part of Finca de la Calera that gives very low production. The limitation of the soil and the special conditions of Toro region give us a very small grape, concentrated and with enough polyphenols to get a complex and structured wines. We harvest early to get a better balance between acidity and alcohol content, so difficult in this area. We do intense pumping and delestage, crio-maceration to extract color and ripe and complex fruitiness in addition to a great structure that allows an ageing of one year in new barrel.
