Bodegas Triton Tinta de Toro 2016
At the dawn of Roman Mythology, Neptune and his son, Triton, were gods of rivers and lakes and were depicted astride gallant stallions, which represented waves upon the waters. The river Duero plays a very important role in the history of the wine, Triton. The ancient vines were planted in gravel strewn sandy soil created by the river. The wretched soil prevented infestations that devastated vineyards throughout the world. Today you can enjoy this elegant wine created from un-grafted vines planted in the 19th century. Meticulously vinified in small lots an aged in the best French oak for 18 months, the wine has a distinctive balance of ripe red fruit flavors and a delicate spiciness. A hint of dark chocolate completes the long finish.
