Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker and Jancis Robinson
A simple but effective Toro
For the price, you are not going to get a great Toro wine but this one is very good considering. As big as this distinctive Toro is, it still has moments of light, fruity beauty. Went well with steak and potatoes/peppers/onions/paprika. I have another bottle and will leave it a while before opening.
A worthy alternative to Ribera

Bodegas Vetus has worked hard to produce wines with the essence of Toro ever...
