Product Description
Details

Produced by Teso La Monja in DO Toro, Victorino is a varietal Spanish red wine made from Tinta de Toro vines 45 to 100 years of age grown in clayey soils with a sandy substratum.

It is 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.

The grapes were picked by hand and meticulously selected. They were destemmed and gently crushed before fermenting with gentle pump-overs. Once fermentation was completed, this Crianza red wine was macerated for 21 days on lees.

After that, Victorino 2019 underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, where it was subsequently aged for 18 months. During the process, the wine was racked every 4 months.

Decant this Toro red wine a minimum of 1 hour before drinking.

Appearance

The red wine Victorino is deep purple with some violet tinges.

Nose

Very elegant, this Tinta de Toro has a deep mineral character. Terroir-oriented and intriguing, with bramble and bilberries, notes of flowers and Eastern spices, and some note of earth and underbrush.

Palate

This red wine of Teso la Monja is flavorful, detailed and quite elegant, with a slowly emerging complexity that will unfurl over the next years. Succulent black 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 2019 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.
