2011 Finca Sobreño Tempranillo Toro

SKU #1197472

Finca Sobreño has long been a leading producer of great value reds from Toro, and we are excited to have it back in stock. As with other wines from this D.O., tinto del pais (the region's local clone of Tempranillo) is the grape variety, and it shows lots of brooding dark fruit, a typically Castillian, scorched earth, meaty savor, and robust tannin from both grapes and wood. This is not a timid wine! Serve with braised ox tail and fries, or perhaps with a platter of nicely aged, firm sheep's milk cheese and chorizo, the smokier the better! (Joe Manekin, K&L Spanish & Portuguese wine buyer)

Additional Information:



- A very important red grape varietal that's native to Northern Spain, grown across the north and central regions of the country. Low in acid and alcohol, with subtle strawberry, leather and tobacco notes, the grape responds well to oak aging and plays particularly well with others. Tempranillo is an important component, when combined with Garnacha, Mazuelo, Viura and Graciano, of Rioja, with the best examples coming for the cooler, higher-elevation regions like Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. It is also grown in significant quantities in the Ribera del Duero where it is called Tinto Fino and Penèdes where it is called Ull de Llebre o Ojo de Llebre. Tempranillo hasn't gained a particularly strong foothold outside of Spain, achieving some success under the name Tinto Roriz in Portugal. There it is used as a component of Port and in the table wines of the Ribera del Duero and the Dão.


- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
