A very dense, high intensity garnet red wine with violet hues and overtones. Very open on the nose, its outstanding aromatic intensity is clean, refined, elegant and complex with a fruity and spicy character. Soft, elegant, well-ensembled notes of wood with menthol and balsamic aromas. This is a very expressive, powerful wine with a long, profound, frank finish on the palate. Quite meaty, generous in alcohol, and with a very fresh and firm acidity, it displays ripe, sweet, smooth and velvety tannins. A powerful and expressive combination with perfect balance.
Smoke, licorice and earth flavors mingle in this muscular but balanced red, which has a core of plum fruit and a solid structure, but is a bit austere now, so give it time or decant.
The Frontaura estate has 120 hectares of vines producing the native variety Tempranillo, known locally as Tinta de Toro. The winery is registered in the D.O. Toro, currently one of the most respected by wine critics, including Robert Parker, restaurant owners, gourmets and wine enthusiasts.
