Characteristics of Termes
Termes is a red wine produced by Bodega Numanthia, a winery located in the Toro region.
Termes is the youngest wine of the winery and is made using only Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes. The grapes are grown on vineyards which are between 30-50 years old planted at 700 metres above sea level on small plots between the municipalities of Valdefinjas and Todo, on the slopes of the river Douro.
The harvest is carried out manually when the grapes are of optimal ripness, where they pass through a rigerous selection at the vineyard.
As for the winemaking process, fermentation takes place for 8 days at a controled temperature of 26-28ºC, with battonages occuring twice a day. After, maceration takes place with the skins still intact for 21 days, with soft battonages occuring.
After fermentation, Termes is aged for 16 months in first year French oak barrels with racking occuring every 4 months.
Serve at 17ºC

SightIntense cherry color with a purple trim. Bright and with legs that dye the glass.NoseIntense aromas of fresh fruit (red currant, cherry, raspberry) very well integrated with floral (violets, lavender) and soft spicy notes and a hint of eucalyptus.TasteThis Toro wine expresses the typical rich and complex flavours of the variety Tinta de Toro. The aromatic expression does not stop and has a strong presence. Silky, velvety and vibrant mid palate. After a persistent, widespread and intense attack, hints of fruit reappear with great force accompanied of spicy notes, tobacco and toasty snuff. Long and complex, very persistent.
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.
Numanthia lies in the region of Toro, among hills sculpted by the River Duero in North-Western Spain, not far from the Portuguese border. The Numanthia estate was named in tribute to the town of Numancia, renowned in antiquity for its legendary resistance to Roman invasion. Numanthia's first vineyards were planted in 1880 and, with the same tenacity of Numancia's people, the vines of this lands have resisted the phylloxera epidemic that ravaged Europe's vineyards in the 19th century.
