"I love the aromas of bark, mushrooms and wet earth with dark fruit. Turns to ink and black olives. Full-bodied with chewy and intense tannins, yet there’s real polish and length to this. Still tight, but starting to come through. Blend of 100 parcels of old vines with an average age of 50 years, some as old as 120 years. Drinkable now, but better in 2025." James Suckling 96 points Drink 2023-40

The 2017 Numanthia, sourced from various old vines in Toro, was aged 18 months in French oak (60% new, 1/5 in 400-liter barrels). This garnet-red wine presents balsamic aromas of black olives, graphite and oak, complemented by blackberry and strawberry yogurt hints. Rich and mellow on the palate, it features finely reactive tannins wrapped in a thin, supple texture. The 2017 is a flavorful and enduring Toro wine from a warm and dry vintage.

The 2017 Numanthia represents a blend of their terroirs selected from over 100 plots of ungrafted vines, and it fermented with commercial yeasts and matured in 225- and 400-liter French oak barrels, 60% of them new, for 18 months. They lost 30% of the crop to frost, and then it was warm and dry and the grapes ripened thoroughly. They made an effort to remove all the raisins and did a softer vinification to moderate the extraction. It's ripe at 15.5% alcohol and has a pH of 3.79 and is quite harmonious, big and rich but with no excess and with integrated oak. 76,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.

A harmonious red showing subtle power, with sculpted tannins finely meshed to a creamy range of ripe black currant, dried mint, pomegranate puree, espresso and loamy earth flavors. Fresh and focused, with a fragrant finish of Earl Grey tea. Drink now through 2030. 6,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
