El Bos Tinta de Toro

Toro is a lesser-known region of Spain but home to some of its finest wines made from the Tinta de Toro grape, the original un-grafted variety of the Tempranillo grape, which produces wine with more colour and higher tannin levels than Tempranillo elsewhere in Spain.

DO Toro

Bodegas Covitoro Commitment to quality implies fulfilment of strict current standards which are set forth by the Regulations which govern the Toro Designation of Origin. These regulations apply the entire process with specific norms that begin with the implantation of the vineyard and its associated cultural practices and ends with the commercialisation of the bottled product; detailing, in each case, the qualification standards of the product, the labelling, the harvesting, the production and the shipment of the product, etc., which together guarantee the origin and certification of the product. The red wines are made mainly with the Tinta de Toro variety, always in search of the required degree of maturity to obtain wines in which the balance of their components is reflected in the notable quality of the wines. The destemmed grape is placed in vats, where it ferments with the skins for a time that depends on the type.
