Bodegas Frontaura "Aponte" 2006Regular price $163.00
Variety: 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). Appearance: Deeply opaque, with impenetrable aubergine hue. Some sediment, so decant. Nose: Hauntingly pronounced, with plenty of dark berries, spice and sweet balsam notes. Palate: Full-bodied, captivating rich flavors of blackberries, deep ripe plums, baking spices, & hints of a vanillian toast pull you through to a creamy, lingering finish that completely coats your tongue and makes you pause before going for your next sip. Vinification: Made from near hundred-year-old vines of very low yield. The alcoholic fermentation is made directly in wooden tanks, after it ages for about 20 months in new French oak barrels. One of the top wines from DO Toro and perfect for your full-bodied wine enthusiast. Recommended Food Pairing: Decant this wine, and serve with grilled medium-rare Porterhouse and a sliver of butter. Perfection.
