A powerful but elegant wine from the Toro DO, bursting with aromas of ripe strawberry, black cherry, blackberry and spice.

The 20 hectares of vineyard are located in the Villabuena del Puente municipality within the Toro DO. The climate here is continental with hot and often very dry summers and cold winters. The vineyards are on south-facing slopes with sandy and clay soils and sit at around 700 metres above sea level. At this altitude, there is a wide diurnal range and the grapes benefit from warm days tempered by cool nights and undergo a perfectly paced slow ripening. The 30-year-old vines are dry farmed and yields are naturally low at around five tonnes per hectare on average. Harvesting is done by hand and the vineyards are farmed organically.
