Review

This extraordinary red is made from grapes grown on old vines in the village of San Román de la Hornija. There, near to Villafranca de Duero, enjoying an inclement continental climate, the plants in bush form deliver Tinta de Toro at its very best. The grapes are harvested manually very early in the morning and once destalked, they ferment for about 20 days. Immediately afterwards the process of rounding off the wine takes place in large American and French oak barrels. After a brief period of reposing in bottle, the Elías Mora Crianza is released onto the market, brimming with the essence of its land of origin, bringing very much to the fore the denomination's enormous potential and that of the Tinta de Toro variety.

On uncorking the bottle, we find an immense red that's a lovely purple colour, and combines the virtues of traditional Toro DO wines with the more positive characteristics of the new Castilian reds. It has body and aromatic intensity, but freshness and acidity too; it flows and expands as it does so. On the nose, mineral and ink notes can be discerned, the well-ripened black fruit (although some red fruit too) and the fine spices arising from its oak ageing. On the palate, it's pure silk, equally delicate and intense; certainly a Toro, and among the finest. Cocoa, dried orange peel, liquorice... It begins taking its leave at a slow pace, firmly and furtively, and moves off elegantly, leaving behind it a protracted hint of ripe fruit and blue flowers.

Superb

Not only is this wine superb it’s amazingly value for money. Much heavier than a Rioja but very smooth at the same time. More please 🙂🍷

Exquisito!!

Es un vino con cuerpo a pesar de ser un crianza. Potente en el paladar y muy aromático. Aconsejo tomarlo no demasiado frío para poder apreciar todo su sabor.

A must try

This is a great wine in terms of both value and quality. Even though it is 15% it drinks well with it without food

Toda la fuerza de la tinta toro

Vino que refleja las características típicas de la tinta toro con su fuerza y carácter. Intenso y aromático. Recomendable sin lugar a dudas.

Muy buena relación calidad/precio

Me gusta mucho probar vinos de regiones menos conocidos. España tiene muchos vinos buenos y no solo en Rioja o Ribera del Duero. Este vino es un muy buen ejemplo.
