SKU: 37412927845 Categories: ,

Top of the range Teso La Monja is crafted in miniscule quantities – only around 900 bottles are made each year. It comes from a small, 1.8 hectare plot of vines, with more limestone in the soil than is typical for Toro. It is famously fermented in a wooden egg, whose precious contents are then transferred to three new Bordeaux barrels. Deep ruby in hue, it is aromatic and complex, combining ripe fruit with hints of toasted wood and laurel. Full-bodied, and yet with a sense of weightlessness, it is effortlessly well-balanced, with good acidity and excellent persistence on the palate. The flavours and texture are superbly well-integrated on the long, silky finish.
