Characteristics of Flor de Vetus

Flor de Vetus is a red wine from Toro produced by Vetus. This winery is located a few kilometres from the town of Toro (Zamora), the epicentre of the wine region.

The Vetus winery belongs to Artevino Group, a wine cooperative to which also belong other wineries including Orben, Villacreces and Izadi.

Flor de Vetus is a varietal Tinta de Toro. The grapes come from vineyards with low production planted on hillsides at 700m with north-south orientation. The vineyards mature on limestone, sandstone soils, which are both coarse and fine grain.

The development of Flor de Vetus begins with a manual harvest and a double selection in the cellar.

The subsequent fermentation takes place in conical tanks. Before marketing, Flor de Vetus is aged for nine months in French oak barrels.
The 2012 vintage of Flor de Vetus received no less than 92 Parker points. With this price and such great recognition, it is gradually becoming one of the best sellers on Decántalo.

Tasting notes Flor de Vetus

This is an excellent vintage in D.O. Toro. With a somewhat particular autumn due to scarce rainfall and slightly higher than normal temperatures. It wasn’t until early January that the rainfall went back to normal.From February to March, temperatures and rainfall were normal, so the water reserves and the growth cycle began correctly.Budding and flowering were delayed for a few days due to low temperatures in May.The high temperatures start at the end of June, boosting the flowering and growth process.The summer went by without any major weather events until mid-September, when light rains and a drop in temperatures led to a slower ripening until the start of the harvest, which arrived with an optimum degree of ripeness.The wines of this vintage present a great balance between ripeness and acidity. Wines fresh in their youth and prepared to age perfectly.
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.
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.
Sight Dark cherry with violet tones. Clean and bright, has an abundant glyceric tear. Nose Medium-high intensity which clearly dominates the fruit. Berries, currants, blackberries, and black berries give way to balsamic, spices and lactic notes. Background of soft toast. Taste Powerful and cool at times, in passing it is marked by a very high burden of liquorice and fruit. It has good acidity and high tannin sensation. Long, correct persistence.
Sight Dark cherry red colour with violet tones. Clean and bright, abundant load of glycerine, slightly coloured. Nose Medium-high nose in which the fruit stands out. Red fruit, redcurrant and blackberries give way to balsamic, spiced and lactic notes. Soft toasted nuances in the background. Taste In the mouth, it is a very powerful wine, with a mid-palate marked by a great load of fruit with a quite high alcoholic content. Great acidity and high tannic sensation. Medium-bodied red wine which is very nice and sweet. Long finish with a correct persistence.

Production area D.O. Toro

Winery 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.

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.
