Wine of the Week: 2009 Teso La Monja “Romanico” Toro!

posted in: Specials | 0


Bodega Teso La Monja was founded in 2009 by the Eguren family, who sold their very successful Numanthia-Termes winery to luxury-goods giant Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in 2008.  The Eguren family, which hails from Rioja where it own three other wineries, were instrumental in putting Spain’s Toro region on the world wine map with its high-end cuvées Termanthia and Numanthia.   The winery is located in the  Denominación de Origen Toro, not too far from its more well-known neighbor, DO Ribero del Duero.

 The wine is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local clone Tempranillo) aged in 100% new French oak for six months. The fruit for this wine come from vineyards between 15-20 years old.

Black and red fruit, dried tobacco, and anise aromas give way to a full-bodied palate vibrant with blackberry, cassis, bittersweet chocolate and spice flavors.
