LA ENFERMERA - Tempranillo - Toro, Spain

LA ENFERMERA -Toro, Spain

"It has a fruit-driven nose with a hint of spicy oak. The palate is light to medium-bodied (for a Toro) with some fine-grained tannins, able to stand up to powerful food and lighter ones too; I can tell you because I tried it! It developed some fresher notes, reminiscent of orange peel and later violets, with time in the glass. Drinkable, pleasant and very good value." - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate - February 2017
