D.O. Toro / Sentero
Sentero is a wine name inspired by two Spanish terms: “Sendero”, which could be translated into Italian as “Sentiero”, and “Sentimiento” (Feeling). Its label intends to convey the feeling of flowing along the vast vineyard landscapes in Morales de Toro while handpicking their yearly crop.
Best served chilled between 8-10ºC.
Brimming with tradition, Toro D.O. is an exciting wine region nestled in the heart of Castile and León, in the northern Spanish province of Zamora. This D.O. is next door to Rueda’s territory, and not far from Ribera del Duero and Rioja’s. It is one of Spain’s best kept secrets. Its wines inherit a long history, dating back to Roman settlements. In the middle ages, the wines enjoyed Royal privileges that allowed them to be exclusively sold in towns and cities. Even Christopher Columbus is said to have taken the wines of Toro on his expeditions to America. Toro qualified for the Denominación de Origen status in 1987. With its ancient vines, it is certainly one of Spain´s most promising regions for the production of red wines of impressive quality.
This wine is bright strawberry in colour. On the nose it displays powerful aromas of red fruits, the palate is elegant and delectable.
A suitable companion to white meats, pasta, salads and starters.
The grapes are carefully selected and undergo a period of maceration that lasts 6-8 hours; this ensures that the wine acquires its typical colour and aromas. Fermentation is cool and takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature of 16 ºC.
