Best Wine of The World Toro

Best Wine of the World TORO

The Toro wines have a very long tradition, older than when the Romans settled in the Iberian Peninsula. Their qualities allowed them to be sold in the Middle Ages when the other wines were forbidden, thanks to royal privileges. During the 19th century, France imported large quantities of wine from Toro to fill the gap caused by the phyloxera plague.

In the shadows of the big wine producing areas like Rioja or Ribera del Duero, Toro, according to Andreas Larsson, with his very old vines, is able to produce muscular and powerful wines, with lush and opulence.  Also, the Tempranillo is the most common variety here.

The area receives a great deal of Atlantic influences in a very dry climate. Adding a lot of sunshine and very cold nights with an altitude of 620 to 750 meters and you will get an exceptional grape quality.

The current highest rated Toro wine from Andreas Larsson comes from Dominio del Bendito with their Titan del Bendito 2007.

Dominio Del Bendito – El Titan Del Bendito - 2007
Spain – Toro - Red
94 points
“Incredibly dense colour the nose is young and displays fine purity and a plethora of fruit, almost Port like with notes of prune, blackcurrant, dates and figs the palate is quite massive with very high concentration, well integrated oak, discreet spiciness and very long finish – massive wine without hard edges, excellent fruit.”

Bodegas Sobreno – Finca Sobreno - 2008 
Spain – Toro - Red
92 points
“Luscious dark fruit, blackberry, plum and spices. Unctuous texture, rounded tannin, layers of dark fruit, very full and persistent with spicy dark fruit and a very good length.”

Bodegas Iturria – Valdosan - 2009 
Spain - Toro – Red
90 points
“Very dark colour; modern nose of new oak, smoke and ripe dark fruit; the palate is highly concentrated and very ripe, there is excellent fruit and a rather generous amount of alcohol, but the tannins show freshness and good length – this should gain from further ageing – well made in a blockbuster style.”

Bodegas Maurodos – San Roman - 2008 
Spain – Toro - Red
90 points
“Very inky and massive colour the nose is still youthful and offers high ripeness and notes of prune, dark cherry, liquorice and some toasted new oak the palate is quite massive and concentrated, although with soft extraction and freshness that backs up the ripe fruit, there is still a presence of oak, but this should be integrated over the years to come. However, I would definitely tuck this away for another, 3-4 years to mature.”
