More about this wine from Toro, Spain
Toro is a region of Spain that has a long history with wine, dating back to the 13th century when their juice was purportedly the favorite of the Castilian monarchs, and, according to legend, was also aboard Christopher Columbus’ ships as they sailed to the Americas. Needless to say, the region of Toro is bullish, not just in name but on wine, and the Valbusenda winery lives up to the region's reputation. From the region’s blazing hot summers and brutal winters and its dry, stone soils, you’ll find that their Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo grown in the DO Toro) emerges as a wine of deep character and inimitable (bullish) strength that will shoot straight through all your five senses.
How to drink it

Pro Tip:

A wine as big as a Toro red will need some hearty foods like pastas with red sauce, meaty pizza, and Mexican dishes. And this fully loaded nacho recipe will do this wine justice.
