Toro is a historic winemaking area located in the North of Spanish meseta. It is famous because od its rich, ripe and powerful red wines, based on the native Tinta de Toro grape.Toro has made a huge comeback in the last twenty years, after a new generation of trained oenologists began to work there. Its evolution has placed this wine as protagonist of the magma of wine reviews at both national and international levels.
What makes Toro's red wines unusual - and has given them fame since medieval times - is their combination of top-range strength, full fruit, freshness and acidity as well as the ability to age well. Local producers reckon that young wines peak when two years old, Crianzas at five to nine years, Reservas at thirteen years and Gran Reservas at twenty years.
