Piedra Prohibida 2017, red wine DO Toro.
Piedra Prohibida wine is made with grapes grown in our Bocarrage Parcel, using absolutely no sulfites, nor additives or treatments of any kind. The grapes are exclusively hand harvested, ripe Tinta de Toro grapes.
After spontaneous alcoholic fermentation, with the malolactic naturally following in French oak barriques, the wine remains on its lees for a period of six months, after which it is lightly filtered prior to bottling.
With all of its integrity and natural fruit, this wine is a pure expression of the best that an old vineyard site in the Toro region has to offer.
