Characteristics of Aciano

This wine is aged for 12 months in used French oak barrels. Aciano is a red wine produced by Alvar de Dios Hernández in El Pego, within the D.O Toro.

After working in several different wineries, Alvar de Dios decided to start his own personal project, demonstrating the value of the old vines owned by his grandfather in the town of El Pego. His clear effort towards an organic-biodynamic cultivation and a classic production, result in fine and tasty wines. Alvar de Dios has managed to position himself amongst the most important winemakers of the area.

Aciano comes from a 3-hectare pre-phylloxera vineyard area that was owned by his grandfather, predominantly planted with the Tinta de Toro variety and others like Grenache, Mencía, etc. which are ungrafted and over 100 years old. The winemaking process is carried out in a traditional way, fermenting with its own yeasts and with a balanced maceration. It is aged in used oak barrels so that the wine is stabilised and so that it can gain complexity.

Tasting notes Aciano

Aciano 2016 is one of the most balanced wines of Toro. In this vintage, maturity, fruit and ageing in barrels perfectly come together to offer you a great, tasty, complex and lingering wine.
This year, which was described as a very good one, started with high temperatures that did not lower until the end of November. There were also quite low water reserves. In the early spring, temperatures began to rise, leading to the first bleedings of the vines. The beginning of the growth cycle did not present any major upheavals, except for the low humidity due to the lack of rain during the winter. During May, the vines began to develop their buds, causing the flowering during the first week of June. When they started to ripen, the drought and the stress on the vines was evident. At the end of August, there a certain amount of rain helped to hydrate the bunches, which helped to collect the healthiest grapes.As a result, we have a year with wines of a concentrated profile and some acidity. Perfect in their youth and with a medium ageing capacity.

Production area D.O. Toro

Winery Alvar de Dios Hernandez

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.
