The García clan (of Mauro and Mauro VS fame) run this second operation in the hot and still very rural Toro DO; few others – except Vega Sicilia, with its most accomplished but invariably short-lived Pintia – have managed to tame the savage quality of its Tinta de Toro and produce anything of finesse.
Releasing their first vintage in 1997 in premises borrowed until completion of their own modern winery in 2001 – the family’s flagship wine is San Román.
This inky, marvellously intense and fresh, exuberant blockbuster is made from old (80 to 100-year old vine) 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grown primarily on pebbles, spends anywhere between 18 and 22 months maturing in newish French and American barriques depending on vintage and unravels quite spectacularly prior to bottling without filtration.
Toro San Román is an intense and attractive purple-colour with an alluring perfume of toasty oak, liquorice and mineral, spice, violet and balsamic black fruits. The palate is full, sweet, layered and harmonious with good acidity and ripe tannins adding structure to a long and round finish.
A big wine that will continue to evolve in the cellar and drink well into 2025
