Details

A single varietal Tinta de Toro, Numanthia is an exclusive Spanish red wine produced by Bodegas Numanthia.

It is made from 50 to 100-year-old vines, most of them ungrafted, grown in sandy-clay soils. Belonging to the DO Toro, the vineyards are located at an altitude of 700 metres above sea level.

Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the destemmed grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with their skins.

After that, this red wine from Toro was transferred into new French oak barrels, where it was aged for 18 months.

During the ageing process, this Crianza red wine was racked every 4 months. Bottled in June 2017, it was aged for a further 24 months before its commercial release.

Decant Numanthia 2015 a minimum of 2 hours before you drink it.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Numanthia has a very bright, clean, high cherry-coloured robe with a reddish rim.

Nose

Extremely complex, and considerably tight at the beginning, this old-vines Tinta de Toro begins with notes of black fruit, some lactic touches and remembrances of dried flowers, slowly evolving into remembrances of balsam, cedar, toast, tobacco, fine leather, underbush, dry earth and smoke.

Palate

Wow! Bold and muscular, this red wine from Toro also shows an impressive finesse and an extremely precise profile. Liquor-infused fruit, Eastern spices, undergrowth, eucalyptus, menthol, some smokey and mineral remembrances, and some hints of blue flowers. This Crianza red wine has an exceptional acidity, lively tannins and very long, smokey finish.

Our personal opinion

Full-bodied, nuanced and bold, Numanthia 2015 has many good years ahead of it.
