Product Description
Details

Made by the Quinta de la Quietud winery, Corral de Campanas is sourced from the youngest estate-owned Tinta de Toro vineyards. They are located in the town of Toro, at the heart of the Designation of Origin that bears the same name. 

The plants grow in very poor soils at an altitude over 700 metres above sea level.

Harvested by hand at dawn, first the grapes of this Spanish red wine were destemmed and crushed. Then they were cold-soaked for 2 days, fermented under controlled temperature and macerated for 2 weeks.

After that, half of Corral de Campanas 2018 was aged in 90% American and 10% French oak barrels - 30% new - for 12 months. The other half was microoxygenated in vats.

Aerate this organic red wine 30 minutes before drinking.

Pair this Crianza red wine with meat recipes.

Additional Information
Appearance

The wine Corral de Campanas is deep ruby with a violet hue.

Nose

Quite lively, with prominent notes of bilberries and cranberries. This Tinta de Toro red wine also suggests milky candies, cocoa, toast, exotic spices and Tahitian vanilla.

Palate

This wine from Quinta de la Quietud has a lively acidity and round, sweet tannins. Berryish and structured, the wine is certainly fresher than one might think. Finish is long and clean, with a pleasant, spicy aftertaste.

Our personal opinion

A not-so-bold Toro is something to welcome. Corral de Campanas 2018 is substantial, but also drinkable and inviting.

Very good for the price. This is all wild berries, with a touch of spices and a sort of grainy dimension that I've found in other wines from Toro and I very much like.
