100% Tinta de Toro
Bodegas Sobreño was set up by a group of winemakers from Rioja, who created a family-owned winery with the aim of producing fine wines for the international market based on a native grape variety, the Tinta de Toro. In 1999, the first vintage was produced and within a short period of time, their wines began to receive numerous awards and Sobreño soon became known as the new star of the Douro. This modern winery is located in the heart of 24 hectares of vineyards. Sobreño owns a total of 80 hectares, although it controls another 90 through exclusive agreements with local growers. Many of their vines are pre-phylloxera, meaning they are planted directly without the need for grafting, which notably increases their longevity.
Finca Sobreño Crianza was aged for at least 8 months in American oak barrels of less than four years. Another six months in bottle round out its ageing process. Deep-red cherry colour with purple
tones at the edges. Intense aroma, good combination of blackberries with toasted nuances from the oak. Balsamic and spicy undertones.
On the palate it has a potent bouquet, meaty with very fine and ripe tannins. Long and persistent aftertaste.
Ideal for red meats, lamb, game, cheeses and seafood in sauce.
