Vinification:

Grape Varieties

Garnacha tinta  - The most heavily grown Mediterranean red variety in the world, it produces excellent red and rosé wines which benefit from its greasy and sensual tannin.

Syrah - It produces opulent, vigorous red wines with body and a large amount of tannins. It is associated with two key locations: the region of the Rhone Valley and Australian lands.

Cariñena - A classical and traditional variety from the Mediterranean vineyards. It produces robust wines with a high alcohol content which are rich in pigment and extract.


Winery information:

The first Torres winery was built in Catalonia and, encouraged by this thousand-year-old culture, Torres began its expansion by paying homage to the best vineyards in the world, selecting the best estates and seeking the local identify of each land.

At the end of the 1960's, Miguel Torres decided to produce a reserve wine that would capture the character of "Sangre de Toro", a wine with a well-defined identity. The result was "Gran Sangre de Toro", a wine produced with red garnacha, cariñena and syrah which is ennobled by oak ageing.

The best Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah vintages which bring life to Gran Sangre de Toro are cultivated on land that has been famous for producing the best Mediterranean wines since Roman times.


Tasting Note:

The wine is a dark, brilliant garnet red. Seductive ripe fruit aromas (wild blackberries) with toasted and smoky notes. Warm, deep, serious, velvety.

Food Recommendation:

Ideal with game, meat and spices. Serve at 17°C
