TASTING NOTES

"Toro is fiercely hot, and many Toro wines are very high in alcohol and rather baked in character. This has the Vega-Sicilia poise and balance, despite its 15% ABV. The grapes are picked earlier to preserve freshness, and the aging is in a mixture of French and American oak barrels. Pintia is the only wine in the Álvarez stable that does malolactic in American oak. The result is rich and plummy, with firm tannins, good freshness and balance."
