Product Description

Produced by Teso La Monja winery, Victorino is a Spanish red wine crafted by the prestigious Eguren family, known for their excellent job at wineries such as Sierra Cantabria, Señorío de San Vicente and Viñedos de Páganos.

A remarkable single varietal Tinta de Toro, it is made from estate-owned vineyards 45 to 100 years of age, planted in clayey soils with a sandy substratum.

First, the grapes of this red wine from Toro underwent a manual harvest and an exacting selection process. Then they were destemmed and gently crushed before being fermented with gentle pump-overs. After that, they were macerated for 21 days on lees.

Then Victorino 2016 from Toro completed malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels and was aged for 18 months. During the process, the wine was racked every 4 months.

Drink until 2029.

Decant a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Victorino has an intense and bright cherry color with some violet tinges.


Very elegant, this Tinta de Toro has a deep mineral character. Terroir-oriented and intriguing, this crianza red wine suggests exuberant aromas of red and black fruit, notes of Eastern spices and some earthy notions and suggestions of flowers and underbrush.


Expressive, meaty, and very intense. This red wine by Teso la Monja is flavorful, detailed and quite elegant, with a slowly emerging complexity that will unfurl over the next years. Victorino from Toro fills the mouth with succulent fruit, a peacock's tail of seductive spices, an ever present minerality and a deep sense of terroir. Excellent acidity, with well integrated tannins and a persistent finish.

Our personal opinion

Serious, bold and age-worthy, Victorino 2016 is a feast for the senses. The Eguren brothers have done a nice piece of work.

Monumenthal but, for the time being, a bit monolithic. It begins to deliver after 4 o 5 hours inside the decanter, but even then it feels muted and compressed. A wine to store for years, undoubtedly.

Now, this is a serious wine. Bold, but quite transparent, showing a direct link to the land. Lush, smooth blueberries, violets, spices and herbs. I think it will reach its peak in 4-5 years.
