Characteristics of Celsus
Celsus 2010 (DO Toro) is a varietal wine made of Tinta de Toro from a very old pre-phylloxera vineyard located at the property named Camparrón en Morales. It is elaborated by Bodegas Vetus, which belongs to the group Artevino, which is formed by other wines such as Bodegas Orben, Villacreces or Izadi. After the manual harvest and a double selection of the grapes, the juice is fermented in 3000 litres tronco-conical vats and goes through a malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels in which it is aged for 14 months.
Production limited to 2,509 bottles.

The vintage began with a rainy autumn and low temperatures that produced frost for days in a row in December. At the beginning of March, temperatures began to recover and at the beginning of April, the start of the growth cycle was already visible. Due to the persistence of high temperatures, the growth of the vines took place faster, bringing forward the flowering. In June, temperatures dropped but in July they increased significantly, causing the dehydration of some berries. In August and early September the weather evolved normally, until the arrival of the harvest.As a result, we have a year with wines of good body and acidity. Fluid wines in their youth and with a good ageing capacity.
The 2013 vintage, rated as a very good one, began in a complicated way. In the early spring, in April and May, temperatures were low and there were heavy rains, significantly delaying the start of the growth cycle. This resulted in late flowering and therefore later ripening. Before the harvest, there was a considerable amount of rain, which produced an interspersed harvest.After a cold and rainy year, the profile of the wines they have produced are less concentrated than usual. Fresher and with a good acidity.

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.
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.
