TESO DE LA MONJA ALMIREZ 2016
The 2016 Almirez is brilliant! Made from 100% Tinta de Toro that spent 14 months in 30% new French oak, this full-bodied, concentrated 2016 is loaded with notions of blueberries, blackberries, cedar pencil, and cured meats. With terrific depth of fruit, notable purity, and a sexy, seamless style, it’s one of those knockout wines that way over-delivers!
Intense cherry, it offers complex aroma of rich fruit, brandy, biscuit coffee, plum and aniseed. On the palate is creamy, rich and aromatic. Very expressive and the finish leaves a pleasant memory of lightly toasted notes.
Five generations of grape growers rooted in San Vicente de la Sonsierra has built a history of complicity between the man and the vine to extract all the virtues of a unique variety, the Tempranillo, applying all the efforts to transmit its expressiveness in outstanding wines of utmost purity and terroir’s reflection.
