Characteristics of Frontaura Crianza
Frontaura Crianza is a red wine from D.O Toro produced by the Frontaura winery. This is a single variety wine made exclusively with Tinta de Toro grapes, the name given to Tempranillo in the region.
All of the grapes used for Frontaura Crianza come from the same plot owned by the winery: Pago de Valdelacasa. The vines, which are old, grow on trellises and are located 650 metres above sea level. The vineyards are home to loamy clay soils and yield per hectare is 3,500 kilos.
After the harvest has been carried out, the grapes ferment for one week in stainless steel tanks. Following this, maceration lasts for 16 days and malolactic fermentation takes place in the same tanks. Frontaura Crianza then ages for 14 months in French oak barrels from Allier before being bottles and placed onto the market.
The Frontaura winery, founded in 1999, is home to 160 hectares of vineyards, which an annual capacity of producing 400,000kg of grapes.
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.
