Appellation: Toro DO
Aging: 14 months in French oak
Winemaker: Telmo Rodriguez

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"The Toro red 2017 Gago comes from a vintage affected by spring frost that wiped out some vineyards and an end of the season that was very warm and dry and pushed the pH up. The wine is riper than usual, reflecting the conditions of the year. Eighty percent of the wine matured in oak foudre, the rest in barrique, for a period of 14 months. It has the Toro character and rusticity, with a solid palate and abundant, slightly dusty tannins. 23,484 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018." -LG, 7/31/20
