Piedra Roja 2012, oaked red wine from Toro, Zamora. Very intense and aromatic wine, perfect for strong wines lovers. A classic wine from Toro, very intense and with elegant fruity aromas combined with its 12 month in french barrels.
Exclusively made with "Tinta de Toro" Grapes, very intense in the nose and in the palate but very well structured and elegant.
Luis Gutiérrez tasting note (The Wine Advocate): "The Piedra Roja is pretty advanced for its age and has aromas of baked apples, decayed roses and plums with spicy aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with polished tannins, ready to drink. Quite pleasant. Drink now."
Sommelier recommendation: Perfect wine for red meats, Iberian cured ham and strong cheeses.
Tasting note: Brilliant, attractive, intense red-cherry colour, with a hint of purple in the rim. In nose it is complex, showing an abundance of mature red fruits over a spicy backbone. The wine sits well in the mouth and again shows nuances of red fruits. Ripened tannins lend structure, although the wine also maintains a refreshing level of acidity. End of taste with long and aromatic finish.
