Toro

Toro: Castilla y León's Wine Legacy

Here is another of Spain's viticultural discoveries of recent times.

Located in the heart of Castilla y León, the Toro appellation has gained international recognition for its powerful and expressive wines. This region, bathed by the Duero River, is home to ancient vineyards that have been the mainstay of its winemaking tradition for centuries.

Until a little more than 10 years ago, Toro's wines were virtually unknown outside their own area and they were considered rather rough and very tannic.

Today the scene has changed completely and, while it is true that the wines continue to be as well-structured and powerful as ever, it is also the case that efforts in the vineyard, employing modern equipment in production processes, and a change of philosophy when it comes to understanding the new-style Toro wines, have all contributed to bringing these products to the favourable notice of the national and international press. A red from Toro is a must-have on any good wine rack.

Intensity and Character

Toro wines are known for their intensity, richness and concentration, largely thanks to the indigenous Tinta de Toro variety. This grape, perfectly adapted to the continental climate and sandy, stony soils, produces full-bodied red wines with deep fruity aromas and well-structured tannins.

Just like in neighbouring Ribera del Duero, Toro basically works with one single grape variety, the Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) which is the essential ingredient and shining star of this region. Distinguishing itself from other Tempranillo wines from different regions, the wines here stand out as having more body, alcoholic strength and structure yet also for being more silky and velvety-textured which, when blended well with toasty barrel notes, produces wines of great elegance.

Climate and Terroir: Perfect Combination

Toro's combination of cold winters, hot summers and low rainfall, together with its unique terroir, favours the production of wines with a very marked identity, where power is balanced with elegance.

Located in the southeast of Zamora province, right in the midst of Castile-León's central plateau, the local climate is extremely continental, with short but hot summers and large diurnal temperature fluctuations. There is also the gently undulating, dry terrain, with brownish-grey limestone and alluvial soils, yet another of the factors determining the wine's character.
