Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Flor de Vetus is a D.O. Toro red wine made by Vetus. This winery lies a few kilometres from the town of Toro (Zamora), the epicentre of this denomination of origin.

The Vetus winery is part of Grupo Artevino, a winemaking cooperative that also counts wineries like Orben, Villacreces and Izadi among its members.

Flor de Vetus is a single-variety Tinta de Toro wine. The grapes come from low yield vineyards planted 700m above sea level on north to south facing slopes. The vines grow on limestone soils, with coarse and fine-grained sandstone.

The Flor de Vetus winemaking process begins with a manual harvest and a double selection process in the winery.
It is then fermented in tapered tanks. Before being sold, Flor de Vetus ages for nine months in French oak barrels.
The Flor de Vetus 2012 vintage achieved an impressive 92 Parker points. With a good price and a high rating, it became a Decantalo best-seller.

Since 2003, Bodegas Vetus chooses to preserve the essence of Toro, at the same time as they are inspired by the discovery of new concepts, new nuances. His extensive experience in the hotel and restaurant business lead Gonzalo Antón to create a wine, Vetus, which soon became one of the most appreciated ones in restaurants. The addition of new production techniques and his desire to continue improving have drawn him towards creating his own style, which consolidated over time. Quality, the connection with gastronomy and the fondness for the land, are the main pillars of Bodega Vetus.
In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
