Product Description
Details

This Spanish organic red wine produced by Bodega Quinta de la Quietud is made from old vines over 80 years of age.

A single varietal Tinta de Toro, Quinta Quietud is produced from vineyards located at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level with yields around 4,000 kg. per hectare.

The soils, which are very poor, are farmed following the principles of organic farming, which includes, among others, decoction of indigenous plants (lavender, nettle) to prevent possible vine diseases.

Harvested by hand, the grapes of Tinta de Toro were selected and brought to the cellar in 20-kg boxes.

Macerated for 15 to 18 days, after the completion of alcoholic fermentation the wine was aged for 20 months in 70% French and 30% American oak barrels. One third were new, one third one-year-old and one third two-year-old.

Drink Quinta Quietud 2014 from Toro over the next 5-7 years.

Decant this old-vines Tinta de Toro 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The organic red wine Quinta Quietud has a medium-high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

 

Nose

This old-vines Tinta de Toro from Toro is deep and rich. Black fruit, violets, some toasted nuances and remembrances of underbush, balsam, dry earth and aromatic herbs combined with some dim mineral undertones.

 

Palate

Meaty and powerful, with a delicately warm core and a smooth texture. Fruit compote, subtle spicy and balsamic notions, some earthy notes and a touch of liquorice and blue flowers. This organic red wine by Quinta Quietud has a very good acidity, lively tannins and a long, mineral finish.

 

Our personal opinion

Elegant, suggestive and complex, Quinta Quietud 2014 is an organic red wine with a remarkable ageing potential
