Teso La Monja marks the beginning of a new era for the Eguren family in the D.O Toro, a land whom they fell in love with, seduced by its pre-phylloxera vines and deep roots vineyards. The Bodega elaborates wines which transmit not only the potential of the Tinta de Toro and the minerality of the soils but also the elegance, freshness and the finesse which are a trademark of all the Eguren family’s wines. The Bodega owns 90 ha of vineyards located in Valdefinjas, Toro y Villabuena del Puente, the average vine age is about 50 years old with some of the vineyard reaching 130 years. They practise sustainable viticulture, with a great respect for the nature and its surroundings, working with the plant’s cycles. Moreover they employ only organic fertilizer and natural products. Their aim is to obtain wines of the highest purity possibly and maximum expression of terroir.
Tasting Notes: Intense aromas of black fruits, plum, black berry, spices and mineral notes very much present. Seductive ripe dark cherry nose with a touch of spice. Very expressive and dense. Finishing long and elegant with silky but firm tannins.
