Description: El Viejo translates as the old one and such gives us a clue to the winemaking style of this 100% tempranillo from Toro in Northern Spain. Made from vines that are over 100 years old, the grapes are hand picked and aged in new french oak barrels for over 16 months.
Tasting Note : A deep cherry color, high lamina, with violet colored notes in its border. Thanks to the barrel aging the wine acquired a very intense nose with mature black fruit aromas, well integrated with the toasted, spiced and smoked notes. Corpulent in the mouth with very mature and round tannins that give its sweetness. In the long and persistent aftertaste appear once again mature fruit perfectly assembled with the roasted character of the wood.”
