Tinta de Toro is one of the many aliases of the popular and versatile grape Tempranillo. Winemaker Wenceslao Gil Durantez began his wine career when his soccer career was ended by injury. The Beautiful Game's loss has been our gain. His 100% Tinta de Toro, the local name for Tempranillo, offers an impressively complex nose of smoked meat, vanilla, spice and violets. Boldly structured, rich and flavourful with a light spicy note on the long finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
