The Sangre de Toro by Miguel Torres is a wonderful red wine from the Garnacha Tinta (65%) and Carinena (35%) grape varieties. This wine has its name Sangre de Toro (blood of the bull) from the wine god Bacchus - the Romans also called this son of the bull.
In the glass, this wine presents itself in a deep dark cherry red with purple reflections. The bouquet reveals fruity-spicy aromas of sweetly ripened dark berries, juicy cherries and is accompanied by subtle herbal spices and wood nuances. On the palate there is a strong, full-bodied and velvety personality, which is accompanied by soft tannins. The aromas of the nose are also reflected on the palate. The finish has a good length and is accented by oak roasted aromas.
Vinification of Miguel Torres Sangre de Toro
In September the grapes are harvested for this Spanish red wine. In the wine cellar, the harvested material is immediately cold mashed. This removes the colour pigments and fragrant aromas from the berry skins. Thereafter, the temperature-controlled 7-day fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. After completion of fermentation and two weeks of mashing, this wine is aged for 6 months in French and American oak barrels.
