Gago is a red wine produced by the Telmo Rodriguez winery in Toro. Telmo Rodriguez is a wine company that produces wines of different Spanish origins (Malaga, Alicante, Rioja, Rueda ...). In all areas where the winery produces wines, they always try to use local varieties.

Gago is a varietal Tinta de Toro from old vines over 40 years old located in the town of Zamora. The vineyards are grown on slopes facing east, at an altitude of 650m on well-drained soils of varying texture and deep gravel.

Its development begins with a manual harvest and transportation of grapes in boxes. In the cellar, the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts at a temperature of 28 ° C in closed stainless steel tanks. Maceration with skins is performed for 20 days.

After the fermentation process, Gago spends 14 months in foudres of 1500 litres and 225 litre barrels.

Before bottling, this wine is not filtered or clarified.

It is safe to say that Telmo Rodríguez has the reputation of being one of the pioneers and best "driving winemakers", that is, winemakers that travel to different areas to produce wines from the same harvest, using only native varieties from their original regions, apart from paying special attention to the recovery of abandoned vineyards. Currently, Telmo Rodríguez, who enjoys being a winemaker more than an oenologist, is known in the wine industry for being one of the promoters of Spanish winemaking.
Pictures and situation Telmo Rodríguez
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.
