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.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Tasting notes Almirez

Sight Beautiful and very lively cherry red colour with violet reflections. Clean and very bright wine with a high robe. Its tears stain the glass. Nose Highly fruity. In the nose, the notes of red fruit (blackberries and raspberries) take centre stage and gain in intensity and ripeness as the wine is aerated. Its abundant notes of spices, coffee, chocolate and vanilla are released along with some hot spices and subtle mineral nuances. Elegant background with toasted and smoked notes. Taste A red wine with a very bulky and pleasant attack and a tasty and fleshy mid -palate, extremely refined and elegant and with a silky texture. A fruity, full-bodied and bulky wine, with polished tannins. Good, refreshing and integrated acidity. Very balanced. Long and persistent finish with fruity, spicy and balsamic sensations. A round, pleasant and elegant wine from Toro.
Sight Intense and beautiful cherry colour with purple reflections. High layer and tears that stain the glass. Nose Very fruity wine. The notes of red fruit take centre stage and gain strength and maturity with aeration. Many notes of spices, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some spicy and subtle mineral hints are also felt. Elegant background of toasted and smoked notes. The wood is very well integrated since it does not hide the notes of fruit, and a wine that is the ultimate expression of the grapes is achieved. Taste Wine with a soft and very nice attack. It has a tasty and creamy mid palate and a silky texture. It is a fruity, well bodied and bulky wine. It has polished tannins, a good acidity and a good balance. Long and lingering finish with spicy and balsamic sensations. A very pleasant, round and slightly sweet wine from Toro that we will conquer us.
