"The 2008 Teso La Monja Victorino went through malolactic in new French oak followed 18 months of ageing in new barrels. Dense purple in colour, it displays an already complex bouquet of Asian spices, sandalwood, leather and balsamic and brooding black fruits. Dense and backward on the palate but well balanced, it mandates a minimum of 5-7 years of cellaring. It will provide prime drinking from 2017-2028."

Teso La Monja Victorino is named after Victorino Eguren Ugarte, who established the family winery with his brother Guillermo in Rioja in 1957. The grapes are individually selected before being fermented and then matured in 100% new French oak. Winemaker Marcos Eguren is a master of the modern style, and given that Toro is seen as the new face of "classic" Spanish red wine this is very much in keeping with that tradition.
