Teso La Monja 2021 Tinta de Toro Romanico, Toro Spain
Romanico is always a hit when we pour it at one of our tasting events. It really shows how enjoyable and rich the Tempranillo wines from Toro can be without going over the top. The wine is dense and smooth with black berry and cherry fruits with hints of oak spice adding complexity and a nice vein of acidity keeping it fresh on the palate. A great buy! Tinta de Toro is the name used for Tempranillo in the region of Toro in central Spain. The Tinta de Toro grape is smaller with thicker skins and produces a much richer style Tempranillo wine that can’t be achieved in Rioja.
Pair with roasted meats, rich braises and ragus, hearty pastas.
