The climate year in Toro was the same as its close neighbors in Ribera de Duero: hot and dry. With one big exception: they didn’t suffer the tragic frost of April 28. The spring began with high temperatures resulting in early budding, and later a sudden drop in temperatures caused the slowdown of the growth cycle again. The late spring and early summer suffered high temperatures that advanced the cycle. In late July and August, temperatures eased up and some precipitation ensured the water reserves until the end of the harvest, improving acidity and giving fruitiness to the wine.
In this excellent vintage Almirez 2016 stands out for the finesse and fluidity within the region. It has a character that is typical of Eguren wines, where the small notes of its aging give way to the spicy and fruity flavour of the Tinta de Toro variety. A great year for the baby of the family.

A red wine with a very bulky and pleasant attack and a tasty and fleshy mid -palate, extremely refined and elegant and with a silky texture. A fruity, full-bodied and bulky wine, with polished tannins. Good, refreshing and integrated acidity. Very balanced. Long and persistent finish with fruity, spicy and balsamic sensations. A round, pleasant and elegant wine from Toro
Beautiful and very lively cherry red colour with violet reflections. Clean and very bright wine with a high robe. Its tears stain the glass.
Highly fruity. In the nose, the notes of red fruit (blackberries and raspberries) take centre stage and gain in intensity and ripeness as the wine is aerated. Its abundant notes of spices, coffee, chocolate and vanilla are released along with some hot spices and subtle mineral nuances. Elegant background with toasted and smoked notes.

Intense and beautiful cherry colour with purple reflections. High layer and tears that stain the glass.
Very fruity wine. The notes of red fruit take centre stage and gain strength and maturity with aeration. Many notes of spices, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, some spicy and subtle mineral hints are also felt. Elegant background of toasted and smoked notes.
The wood is very well integrated since it does not hide the notes of fruit, and a wine that is the ultimate expression of the grapes is achieved.
