Torresilo is the wine that best reflects the perfect character of the winery´s best wine. It’s a wine from unique terroirs, blended with the old custom of achieving quality by mixing grapes from different high quality plots. Blended from more than a dozen small plots with vines of over 100 years old which existed before phylloxera, bearing low yields from high lands. A dark intense cherry red, it’s clean and brilliant with intense complex aromas. Allow the wine to open up and breathe to get the best of its ripe dark fruits (plums), spices (nutmeg) and balsamic notes intertwined with soft toasted aromas. On the palate it is deep, silky, well balanced with a good body with ripe fruits and minerality. Long lingering with an excellent acidity, pure silk mature tannins which will smooth out in time. A lasting and enticing wine. A fabulous example of an elegant vintage with a good capacity for ageing.
