Review

Toro offers us elegant wines, with those from Teso la Monja already exhibiting the classic style found within. Classic in every sense of the word, noble and elegant. The experience and knowledge that Marcos Eguren and his whole family have gained over the years in this Castile-Leon denomination are widely recognised and well-documented.

Marcos Eguren has always championed the Tinta de Toro, a grape with a rough disposition like the countryside where it grows, with plenty of structure, yet lovely and generous when one learns 'to tame its wild side', to give it subtlety and distinction, as he himself explained to us on a visit. The Tinta de Toro requires knowing how to combine the fruit from the different growing areas correctly, selecting and blending it in the right proportions. Only then will it reveal that elegance complemented by powerfulness which we're looking for, that fruit-filled freshness, that balance and expressivity which brings so much pleasure to our palates. This is the philosophy that lies behind Almirez, the youngest of this Toro wine family, attractively represented on its label by an almirez, a metal mortar in which so many magic mixtures of spices and other ingredients have been concocted in kitchens since time immemorial.

The Teso La Monja wines have been created to be objects of desire, and the young Almirez provides plenty of pleasure for very little money.

aspettavo un vino tutto muscoli invece elegantissimo, mi è sembrato percepire macerazione carbonica, comunque ancora da assestare...da provare con altri toro per farsi un'idea della tipologia, per me nuova...

Gran vino

He tomado este vino antes y la verdad que es un clasico de DO Toro. Vino de explosion frutal, de cuerpo largo y elegante. Increible con cualquier carne roja. Calidad - precio muy buena

Powerful but balanced Toro

2016 is a very balanced year for this beautiful Toro. Always recommendable for this price in any year if you like powerful but not over the top wines.

Teso La Monja

Teso La Monja

The Eguren family, originally from La Rioja, discovered Toro and has stayed with it, persuaded by the land’s potential and by the Tinta de Toro, a grape with great structure, able to convey the minerality of the soils but with a strong character that needs understanding and “taming”. Marcos Eguren understands it perfectly and proved this with the wines of his first project in the region, Numanthia Termes, powerful wines, always subtle and elegant. Teso La Monja possesses mor...
