Teso la Monja Romanico 2013
A wine of considerable intensity, inky purple color, loads of crème de cassis, blackberry, licorice and camphor, the wine is full-bodied, luscious, with low acidity and silky tannin. Expressive red berry liqueur and floral pastilles on the nose, along with suggestions of vanilla and five-spice powder. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering intense raspberry and candied rose flavors that deepen with air. The suave, broad, clinging finish features supple tannins and resonating red berry and floral notes.
The Eguren family fell in love with this land more than 15 years ago, seduced by its pre-phylloxera vines, deep roots vineyards meticulously chose to translate the minerality of the soils in powerful and elegant reds. And our love for Toro remains unchanged.
Founded in 2007 by the Eguren family, five wines are elaborated in the cellar: Romanico, Almirez, Victorino, Alabaster and Teso La Monja, the most exclusive project that takes the name of the winery. The deep roots of the old vine Tinta de Toro grape translate the pure minerality of the soil into powerful yet elegant red wines.
