After a big jump in price from the Numanthia, the 2013 Termanthia is a single-vineyard Tempranillo from a plot of ungrafted vines planted between 1870 and 1890; the vineyard is named Teso de los Carilles, and it is located in the south of the Toro appellation, planted on sandy soils at some 800 meters altitude. It fermented in troncoconic 1,000- and 2,000-liter oak vats after a five-day cold soak, foot trodden twice per day during ten days and with an extended maceration of 24 days. It spend 22 months in brand new French oak barriques with rackings every four months. The nose denotes concentration and depth with good integration of the oak that is in the background. However, it's in the palate where after the sweet entry, there are plenty of fine-grained, slightly dusty tannins that coat the inside of your mouth and leave a dry sensation. This is still a young beast of a Toro, and needs time in bottle to polish those tannins. 7,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2015 and should be released around October 2017.
