Details

Románico 2015  is a Spanish red wine made from Tinta de Toro by the Teso La Monja winery.

The Eguren family, the owners of the winery, strictly follow the principles of organic farming -no synthetic chemicals allowed- and practice a policy of minimal intervention in the cellar.

Belonging to the Toro DO, the vineyards grow in clay-limestone soils with some gravel on the surface.

After a careful selection process, the grapes of Románico were destemmed and fermented for 8 days at a temperature of 25ºC using only native yeasts. Then the wine juice was macerated with its skins for 2 more weeks, underwent malolactic fermentation and was finally put into French oak barrels, where it was aged for 6 months prior to its bottling.

Drink this Spanish red wine from now to 2021. Decant 30 minutes before drinking.

Additional Information

Appearance

Románico has a medium-high, dark, cherry robe with a purple rim.

Nose

This red wine from Toro displays notes of jammy black fruit, blue flowers, grilled bread and vanilla. Evocative hints of wet undergrowth over a fresh, trenchant mineral background.

Palate

Luscious and fruity, this varietal Tinta de Toro by the Teso La Monja winery shows black fruit, notes of spices and hints of smoke. As with most Toro reds, this wine has a great structure, bold tannins and a tense acidity. Nevertheless, it remains gentle and pleasant all along. Medium-long finish. 

Our personal opinion

Yes, we love Toro wines. We love this Románico 2015. A good mix of boldness and gentleness.
