Details

Visual: Garnet, medium plus red color with a purple rim indicating youth.

Bouquet: Red berry fruit notes with especially ripe blackberry. Toasted coconut and a hint of sweet baking cabinet like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon.

Palate: Dry with medium acidity, a soft mouth feel and a slightly spicy, long finish.

Winemaker Máximo has taken great care in harmonizing wine with culture. The wine is a great tribute to the folklore and the celebration that accompanied the union of two people in and around Toro. The label itself is a representation of the handmade mantilla that is draped across the shoulders of the local woman of Toro, toresanas, on cold summer nights after the celebration when the sun has gone down. That along with the bold local wine to keep them warm.

About the Producer

Proprietor Máximo San José de la Rosa's style moves away from the classic Toro wine that was dominated by chewy, dry tannin and 15+% alcohol. His wines are fresh and bright due to shorter skin-contact time, lower temperature-controlled fermentations and the sandy soils in which the grapes grow. Máximo reminds us that of the 15 own-hectares, the vines come mainly from Pago de la Jara--a renowned estate outside of Toro where the soil is poor and full of small rocks and pebbles, which forces the root to reach down into the subsoil in search of nutrients. The resulting fruit is full of polyphenols, very concentrated and with a very healthy skin. The other vineyards are planted in Pagos Valdeví and Palo, which are sandy soils giving a fresher wine with touches of floral.
