SANGRE DE TORO - Red wine
Producer Notes

DENOMINACIÓN DE ORIGEN: Catalonia

COUNTRY: Spain

GRAPE TYPES: Cariñena y Granacha tinta

DESCRIPTION
In 1954 Miguel Torres was already seeking out the most prized Mediterranean grape varieties to create a different wine that would express the authentic character of the land. This led to the birth of "Sangre de Toro", whose name is inspired by Baccus, Roman god of wine, known in ancient times as "Son of the Bull".

DOC CATALONIA
We are privileged to have an important variety of climates and soils in a relatively small area.
The most renowned stocks grow in these lands with very varied climates and soils. These grapes give rise to exceptional wines that have positioned the region in the eyes of all quality enthusiasts. 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.

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.

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.

TASTING NOTES
Cherry red in color. Fresh, expressive and intense red fruit aromas with a subtle nuance of oak aging. Velvety on the palate.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with stews, game, meat paellas and traditional mountain cuisine. Serve at 18ºC.
