THE PROJECT´S ORIGIN

Toro has two ingredients that have always attracted the attention of Vintae’s technical team. On the one hand, it is an area that traditionally has not interfered with the vineyard too much. On the other hand, there are old vineyards of extraordinary quality in the D. O. Toro.

Thanks to the climate conditions, with low humidity, and sandy soils there is no need to apply any chemical treatments to avoid diseases as other places do. This may have contributed to the tradition of respecting the pace and allowing nature to play its role. The tradition is such that there is a firm commitment to organic wines and biodynamic agriculture. This philosophy matches our technical team’s perspective to perfection, which is led by Raúl Acha, and it is one of the factors that contributed to calling their attention to this area called Toro.

So, convinced by the philosophy of respecting nature and his attraction to these extremely valuable vines, Raúl Acha initiates a journey to select vineyards with aim of including Toro wines to Vintae’s portfolio.


THE VINEYARDS


OUR WINES




From among the extraordinary quality vineyards of D. O. Toro, Vintae’s technical team has selected true centenarian, or almost centenarian, gems from which a top quality grape is obtained. These vineyards produce the Tinta de Toro variety; are between 80 and 100 years of age and have a very low yield per vine; are located in very poor land; and are cultivated following the area’s tradition of not interfering with the natural processes and the pace set by nature, while using in many cases techniques employed in biodynamic agriculture.


The soils on which these vines grow are sandy and composed of sandstone, clay and Pliocene limestone. Altitude changes in each plot of land are practically non-existent; all the vineyards are located between 650 and 735 metres in the typical undulating land present in this area.



THE TINTA DE TORO VARIETY


Tinta de Toro is a type of Tempranillo variety, in fact it is also known as Tempranillo de Castilla. It provides wine with enormous personality, great colour and an exquisite bouquet. It is a very fine and aromatic grape with a very distinctive ruby colour and a very low oxidative level, which allows the wines to be aged for a long time.


D. O. Toro wines have always been noted for being very dense, full-bodied, strong wines that you can almost chew. These features are provided by the Tinta de Toro, which is nonetheless able to show the smooth and discrete elegance that D. O. Toro wines are tending to lately without losing its strength, thus adapting to the tastes of the new consumers.
