Bigardo - Tinta de Toro
Bigardo Tinta de Toro red wine, made from 100% Tinta de Toro grapes, is a well-made, exciting Toro, brimming with tradition and vibrant youth, is sophisticated and straightforward, showing itself with a ruby red cloak with purple hues. The first nose is intense and layered, bringing forward aromas of black currants, boysenberries, and dried cherries infused with scents of unsweetened cocoa powder, cinnamon, and vanilla. A lovely bouquet over a robust, yet elegant palate that extends for minutes before gliding into a lush aftertaste. You can taste the intense red fruit with raspberry and blueberry notes. There is a hint of black fruit flavours as well, such as blackberry. Tannins are evident along with pine, cocoa, spice and licorice flavour notes. The finish is long and crisp, with a slight bitterness on the tip of your tongue.
