Piedra Roja Toro is a beautiful Spanish red of 100% Tempranillo (Tinta de Toro) from the fast-rising region of Toro. Estancia Piedra SL comes from the realization of a dream for founder Grant Stein to convert his passion for wine into the production of excellent wines. The winery's main vineyard, planted in 1968, is the largest parcel of old vines in the Toro Protected Designation of Origin. Organic.
Piedra Roja is deep ruby-purple in color with a beautiful nose of cassis, blackberry, blueberry, cedar, spice, and toasty oak. Full in body with ripe tannins and balancing acidity, the wine offers up rich flavors of blackberry, black currant, chocolate and spice. It was aged for 12 months in oak barrels, 75% French, and 25% American oak. Rich and complex, it is well balanced to enjoy now and over the next 8-10 years. It is long and elegant on the finish.
Enjoy Piedra Roja with roast leg of lamb, steak, roast pork, paella, and aged cheeses.
