Product Description
Details

A varietal Tinta de Toro, Dominio del Bendito Las Sabias is produced from ungrafted vines 45 to 80 years of age. They are planted in sandy soils in Pago de Jara, a "cru" located near the village of Toro, the capital of DO Toro.

Meticulously harvested, the grapes were selected on site and on arriving at the facilities of bodega Dominio del Bendito. Alcoholic fermentation took place in epoxy-lined concrete diposits, and it was carried out in an extremely gentle way. Given that the Tinta de Toro variety has a high natural concentration of phenolic compounds, the aim was not to extract too much tannin and colour from the grapes.

After that, this Spanish red wine was transferred into French and American oak barrels, where it was aged for 16 months. Dominio del Bendito Las Sabias 2017 was bottled unfined.

We suggest that you decant this Crianza red wine from Toro at least 30 minutes before drinking.

Big-boned, but not vulgar. True Toro character, with terroir and depth. Nice job!
