Characteristics of Gran Sangre de Toro
Sangre de Toro is a red wine from Catalunya prepared by Torres. This wine is a blend of Grenache and Carignan.
This is one of the great wines of Torres. After a slow fermentation and maceration, the wine is aged for 6 months in American oak barrels.
Miguel Torres, in 1954, sought the most prized red grapes of the region. Thus was born "Sangre de Toro" whose name is inspired by Bacchus, the Roman god of wine, also named as "The son of Toro". Bodegas Torres is a family business with generations of experience in winemaking. Currently, it exports to over 140 countries worldwide.

For many Catalan winemakers, the DO Catalunya is one of their best weapons for marketing their wines to the international market, since the image of their wine is significantly enhanced by a ‘Denominación de Origen’, which can certify a wines origin and quality. One of the initial positive effects is the fact that great wines are associated with a larger geographic area within the peninsula, in the same way as the Bordeaux region in France. For many producers, the DO Catalunya is a clear sign of the regions commitment towards a model of quality. This is especially beneficial for Catalan wines that previously did not come under another ‘Denominación de Origen’.
Bodegas Torres is a family business of several generations dedicated to the production of wine and brandy in the Penedés, and they now have an extensive range of products which are exported to more than 140 countries worldwide.
