El Bos Tinta de Toro

Toro is a lesser-known region of Spain but home to some of its finest wines made from the Tinta de Toro grape, the original un-grafted variety of the Tempranillo grape, which produces wine with more colour and higher tannin levels than Tempranillo elsewhere in Spain. Traditionally associated with bull-fighting and bull running and for its gusty robust reds, the region is now producing more elegant and modern wines. Bos, which is produced for us at the Covitoro winery, displays all the typical deep colour and rich fruity aromas but has been made with deliberately restrained tannins to provide smoother, much more elegant drinking. Fittingly the label features an elegant image of the the region’s defining image and the wine is named after the genus for cattle.
