Country: Spain
Region: Castilla Y Leon
Sub-Region: Toro
Grape Varietal:Tempranillo
The Romanico is aged six months in used French oak.

Drunk: 20170527 paired with liver paste, tomato bread, jalapeno cheese stick, jalapeno sausage, bbq dried globe fish.
Taste & nose: fruity, blue to red berry, mild tannin, good fruit. Worth Moore than is value.


Wine Advocate 92
The 2014 Romanico is the better value of the two, with fabulous, dense blackberry and cassis fruit, with licorice, camphor and forest floor. It is dense, full-bodied, opulent, and a dazzling example of a wine made from modest yields of 31 hectoliters per hectare from their younger and middle-aged vineyards. It is 100% Tinto de Toro and their largest production cuvée. It is a sensational buy at $17.00, tasting more like a wine that costs three times that price.

Vinous 91 points - (made from de-stemmed fruit and fermented in stainless steel tanks, followed by malolactic fermentation and six months of aging in used French oak barriques) Opaque ruby. A heady, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red fruits, incense, oak spices and candied flowers, plus a smoky nuance that builds in the glass. Appealingly sweet, palate-coating raspberry, cherry compote and mocha flavors show very good depth, and a spine of acidity adds lift and structure. Rich yet vibrant in style, finishing with noteworthy tenacity and supple tannins that come in late to add closing grip. (May 2017)
