APPELATION: DO Ribera del Duero
VARIETALS: 100% Tinto Fino
WINEMAKER: Juan Carlos Vizcarra
ABOUT THE WINE: Torralvo is the only single vineyard wine that Juan Carlos makes, from one of the highest-altitude parcels on his estate. Planted in the early 1960s, Torralvo is a traditional head-pruned parcel of 100% Tempranillo, farmed organically. Fermented with indigenous yeasts
TASTING NOTES: Mineral- and spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries, lavender and Asian spices on the intensely perfumed nose. At once fleshy and light on its feet, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that show excellent clarity and building sweetness. Turns spicier on the wonderfully persistent finish, which features supple tannins and lingering mineral and floral nuances.
