Characteristics of Gago
Gago is a red wine produced by the Telmo Rodriguez winery in Toro. Telmo Rodriguez is a wine company that produces wines of different Spanish origins (Malaga, Alicante, Rioja, Rueda ...). In all areas where the winery produces wines, they always try to use local varieties.
Gago is a varietal Tinta de Toro from old vines over 40 years old located in the town of Zamora. The vineyards are grown on slopes facing east, at an altitude of 650m on well-drained soils of varying texture and deep gravel.
Its development begins with a manual harvest and transportation of grapes in boxes. In the cellar, the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts at a temperature of 28 ° C in closed stainless steel tanks. Maceration with skins is performed for 20 days.
After the fermentation process, Gago spends 14 months in foudres of 1500 litres and 225 litre barrels.
Before bottling, this wine is not filtered or clarified.

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.
It is safe to say that Telmo Rodríguez has the reputation of being one of the pioneers and best "driving winemakers", that is, winemakers that travel to different areas to produce wines from the same harvest, using only native varieties from their original regions, apart from paying special attention to the recovery of abandoned vineyards. Currently, Telmo Rodríguez, who enjoys being a winemaker more than an oenologist, is known in the wine industry for being one of the promoters of Spanish winemaking.
