Vetus Toro 6 x 75cl

Vetus Toro 6 x 75cl

Vetus Toro's vineyards are 30 years old, located in Villabuena del Puente, and cover 10 hectares of south-facing sites, with sandy and clay soils. They are planted with Tinta de Toro, thought to be Tempranillo which has adapted to the climate of this area. The climate is continental, with long, hot and often very dry summers and quite cold winters. Temperatures may drop to -10°C in winter, and rainfall varies between 30mm in the north of the region and 400mm in the south. Frost is also a danger between October and the first week of May and vineyards located in the flattest area are liable to be hit by strong winds.
Vetus Toro is an intense ruby red with expressive aromas of ripe fruit and a subtle touch of sweet spice. This well-structured and perfectly balanced wine has an exquisite aftertaste, ripe tannins and good acidity.
