Characteristics of Muruve Crianza

Muruve Crianza is a red wine from Toro produced by Frutos Villar. This winery, founded in 1920 and located in the town of Toro (Zamora), was the first to produce wines in Toro.

Muruve Crianza is 100% made from the typical variety of Tinta de Toro. The grapes come from 115ha of vineyards.

The development of this red wine starts with a total stripping of the grapes and traditional fermentation in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28-30°C, which lasts between 12 and 15 days and has 3 movements per day.

After the fermentation process, the wine is aged for 8-12 months in American oak barrels (95%) and French oak barrels (5%) and is racked every three months.

Finally, Muruve Crianza rests at least 6 months in its bottle, in a warehouse where the temperature is below 18 ° C.

Alcohol: 14.5%

Tasting notes Muruve Crianza

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.
Sight Intense ruby with garnet rim. Clean and bright. Nose Medium-high aromatic intensity. Presence of ripe fruit with toast and balsamic notes. Background is spicy. Taste Powerful and enveloping entry. Tasty toasted memories. Good acidity with well integrated tannins. Complex and persistent.
Sight Very covered ruby red colour. Clean and bright. Nose Complex and elegant aromas from its ageing in fine oak, with balsamic touches and a sharp, fruity background. Taste This wine shows lots of character in the mouth. It's tasty and broad with perfectly balanced tannins. Very persistent. Complex and fine sensations from its ageing are felt at retro-olfaction.

Production area D.O. Toro

Winery Frutos Villar

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.
