Vatan Tinta de Toro 2016


More elegant and seamless, Vatan Tinta de Toro 2016 checks in as all Tinta de Toro that spent 20 months in new French oak. It has a brilliant bouquet of blackcurrants, toasted spice, crushed violets, and owery incense. Rich and full-bodied, with good acidity, beautiful balance, and a great finish, it’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and keep for 20+ years. It’s a stunning wine.
