The best Garnacha, Carinena and Syrah grapes that produce Gran Sangre de Toro are grown in a region famous since the times of the Roman Emperor Augustus for producing the finest Mediterranean wines.
Towards the end of the 1960s, Miguel Torres Carbo decided to produce a wine with a well defined identity and a character of its own. Straight away we started experimenting with Garnacha Tinta (60%) and its usual partner, Carinena (25%). The years passed and eventually we also added Syrah (15%). Thus, ennobled by ageing in oak, this wine was born with its intense colour and its rich and fruity aroma.
All the exuberant aroma traditionally found in an intense, ripe red wine, with a sensual background of fine spices in good balance with perfumed notes reminiscent of blackberries.
Full, long finish on the palate.
Ideal with game dishes, ragout and spicy meat dishes. Serve at 17deg C.
