Numanthia Tinta de Toro 2014 Red Wine Spain 70cl
Numanthia 2014 Red Wine is a 100% Tinta de Toro from Spain's Toro region and is named after the city which attempted to resist Roman rule. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, this intense and complex wine showcases notes of fresh and mature fruits, especially strawberries and figs which are accompanied by flavors of cream pastry. The nose goes on to uncover light balsamic touches perfectly integrated with spices such as black pepper combined with notes of tobacco leaves and tiramisu. An intense, powerful and vigorous wine displaying great structure. Impressive fruit expression accompanied by sweet and well ripened tannins, leading to a marked, unctuous mouth feel. A long and persistent finish with spicy and cacao notes.Read more...

When you sip on a glass of wine from Bodega Numanthia, one of Spain’s top producers, consider this: many of the vines that bore the fruit you are savoring were planted in the late 1800’s. Numanthia’s winemaking team believes some of the vines to be even older, dating back almost 200 years. It’s safe to say these vines are old and Numanthia, located about two and a half hours north of Madrid, is renowned for its sole focus on wines crafted from heritage vines.
The winery crafts only three red wines, all from a local strand of Tempranillo called Tinta de Toro. Their Termanthia is from vines 120 to possibly 200 years old, Numanthia is made from vines 50 -100 years old, and Termes, the “youngster” of the three, is from vines 30 -50 years old.
