Finca Sobreno Crianza Toro 2015

13.99

Castilla Y Leon, Spain

100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo)

Deep-red cherry color with purple tones at the edges. The nose shows intense aromas of black berries with toasted oak nuances. This wine is meaty for its price point. The ripe fruit flavors are balanced with good tannic structure. If you like big wines but not the big price, give this Crianza a try.

Finca Sobreño is one of the original winegrowers in the D.O. Toro. Founded by Roberto San Ildefonso in 1998, it was one of less than 10 registered wineries in the appellation, which today counts more than 50 producers. Roberto was originally from Rioja, but left the region when he realized the potential to craft bold, powerful and beautifully structured wines from the Tempranillo clone, Tinta de Toro. This variety produces smaller grapes and with thicker skins than Tempranillo. Among other features, this grape has a higher color concentration, as well as more anthocyanins (which give the wine its aromas) and tannins (which gives structure).

The vines are minimu 30 years old and planted at a very low density (900 plants/hectare), with reduced production levels in the range of 4,000 kilos/hectare. Following selection, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and the must underwent cold maceration for four days prior to fermentation. The total maceration period lasted approximately 20 days. Finca Sobreño Crianza was aged for eight months in American oak barrels and another six months in the bottle to round out its ageing process.
