Characteristics of Almirez
Almirez is a red wine from Toro produced by Bodega Teso La Monja, en Valdefinjas, Zamora. This winery was founded by the Eguren family, who also own the emblematic winery Sierra Cantabria in La Rioja.
They have 92 hectares, some of the vineyards are pre-phylloxera and have been subjected to a harsh continental climate for more than 130 years, with hot summers and very cold winters, shown in the opulent character of their wines. The land is cultivated in a manner that respects the environment and the atmosphere, with as few interventions as possible when working the earth. They avoid using herbicides or systemic products.
The grape comes from different vines with an average age of 15-65 years. It is harvested manually and the first selection is carried out in the vineyard, then a final selection is completed later on a table in the winery.
Fermentation takes place over 8 days at a controlled temperature and it is left to macerate with its skins for 8 more days. 30% of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks. The ageing of Almirez extends over 14 months.
Almirez is a structured red wine, fruity with a dry tannin that will please lovers of concentrated wines.

D.O. Toro is a Denomination of Origin that is situated in the north west of Spain, along the River Duero and its tributaries. From the beginning the Tinta de Toro variety has produced great red wine that is full of flavour and complexity: powerful and full bodied with great tannins.
The winery Teso La Monja has become, despite its youth, one of the reference wineries in the area of Toro. And thanks to the Eguren family, this winery produces highly renowned wines with the traditional strength of the Toro wines but also providing a very fine and elegant palate, common denominator in the wines produced by this family.
