General information

A STAMPLE: All of Mariano Garcia´s wines are.

A few years ago, if someone brought along a Toro wine for a lunch with friends you knew what to expect: potency, potency and more potency. But things have changed. Fancy impressing your friends with a 21st-century Toro? Take them Prima 2017 – by the way, it comes from an Excellent-rated vintage – and you can’t go wrong.

Tasting Notes

Profile sheet Prima 2017

Garnet-cherry-red, very good depth of colour.

Complex, expressive and very clean nose with aromas of red and black fruit (cherries and raspberries), balsamic, smoky and dark-roast notes and hints of liquorice, chocolate and cocoa, over a mineral background.

Excellently balanced, full, very tasty attack with noble tannins that are well integrated into the structure, good acidity and freshness. Mid-palate finesse with hints of acidic red fruit and a nice long finish.
