Characteristics of Terra d'Uro Selección
Design Toro wine made of Tinta de Toro grapes from a unique terroir in which vines of different ages (from 15-year vines to pre-phylloxera vines aged of more than 140 years) were planted. They are located in small properties that put together reach 7 hectares approximately, with about 900 vines per hectare. The year 2008 was marked by the high temperatures. Nevertheless, thanks to the meticulous care of the vines a excellent harvest was obtained. This wine is only made in the years of good harvest. The whole process is conducted manually. The grapes are manually harvested in small boxes and separated from the bunch manually. After fermentation in small tanks with daily pumpings, the wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation in new and second year barrels on its lees with a pumping every two days. Once completed, the wine is aged in barrels for a minimum of 16 months. It is clarified with egg white and it is bottled unfiltered. Limited production. It is recommended to aerate this wine two hours before serving it in order to appreciate its complexity better. It has a great ageing potential. A powerful, very elegant and serious wine, with a high quality and character.
