The Taming of the Bull (Toro)? As a wine region, Toro is best known for its bold and high alcohol content wines. Oenologist Jean François Hébrard - with a sack load of experience from Bordeaux and the Côtes du Rhone - faced the challenge of creating tasty and well-balanced wines here, with respect for tradition and ecology. Toro has a dry, continental climate with sometimes extreme temperature fluctuations. The vineyards are located at an altitude of about 700 metres, and have a sandy topsoil over a thick clay subsoil. The local grape is Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). Thanks to the requisite know-how the wines made here are beautiful and lusciously complex. Quinta La Quietud is without a doubt one of Spain's top bodegas.
D.O. Toro (Province of Zamora) has a reputation for producing outstanding, full-bodied, bold wines. This area has a dry, continental climate with temperatures between -13°C and 40°C, at an altitude of about 700 metres, and a sandy topsoil with a deep clay subsoil. The grape is Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo).
As a historic winemaking area, Toro has made an enormous comeback in the last fifteen years. Its rich, ripe and bold red wines, made from native Tinta de Toro grapes, revealed their potential after a new generation of well-trained winemakers started working here and made much needed investments in stainless steel equipment. Over the last decade steady improvements have been made in harvesting methods.
What makes Toro wine so special – and what has brought it renown since the Middle Ages – is a combination of exceptional boldness, fruitiness, freshness and acidity, as well as the ability to age well.
