D.O. Toro (Castilla y León)
Finca Sobreño Roble is a red wine with D.O.Toro, produced by Bodegas Sobreño in the municipality of Toro (Zamora).
Bodegas Sobreño started its journey in the late 90s, when the San Ildefonso family, originally from Laguardia (Rioja), decided to buy 80 hectares of vineyard and build a new winery in the municipality of Toro.
Currently, half of the vines are planted in vase shape and are more than 30 years old, while the other part is cultivated in espalier since 1999. 25% of them have organic certification. They also control 90 hectares owned by winegrowers of the area.
The philosophy of Bodegas Sobreño is based on making quality wines, keeping the traditional cultivation method, with an excellent grape, small sized, with good ripeness and controlling the production.
Finca Sobreño Roble is a wine made from Tinta de Toro, from their own vineyards.
Grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected. Once they arrive at the winery, they are destemmed. Then, they macerate for 4 days at 10ºC before fermentation. The fermentation takes place at a maximum temperature of 26ºC. The maceration lasts around 15 days. When it has ended, the wine is transferred to American oak barrels that are less than 4 years old. Here, the wine is aged for 6 months. Before it is launched on the market, it is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of 4 months.
Finca Sobreño Roble is a juicy, ample and fresh wine. Very fruity with just the right ageing to give it structure and length.
