"Supple tannins build on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and spicy persistence." ~ Antonio Galloni's VinousWe discovered this Campo Alegre Toro, and were stunned by its value. It's saturated with dark, juicy fruit, has great spice, and tannins that are begging for grilled meats. Nothing complicated here; it's a supremely easy drinking red that won't break or even hurt the bank, and will delight your guests because it goes with everything from burgers to tapas to pulled pork and lots more. A buy-by-the-case-kinda-thing! Salud winelovers!
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and blackberry scents are complicated by notes of licorice, woodsmoke and fresh rose, with a hint of black pepper in the background. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering intense dark berry and cola flavors that pick up spiciness and sweetness with air. Supple tannins build on the finish, which clings with excellent tenacity and spicy persistence." Sep 2016
Wine Enthusiast: "Direct, pointed black cherry, cassis and black plum aromas are ripe as can be, as is the palate. Rich, chocolaty blackberry and peppery flavors finish with moderately rough tannins, but everything else is easy. Drink through 2020." Aug 2016
Winery: "Lovely color of morello cherries. The nose is expressive with aromas of red fruits, cocoa and light notes of spice. On the palate it is round, structured and tannic."
