A red wine that speaks for genuine and original winemaking.
Terroir, production method and aging: The name of the wine is connected to an old legend. Tio Uco was a local hero who defended the village of El Pego from outsiders who tried to invade it for better farmland and food production at a time when the village's Farmland could barely feed its own residents. With the name of the wine, Alvar respects the original winemaking history of the region, which does not want to imitate international, external trends.
The grapes are collected from three different vineyards in the town of El Pego, south of Toro, which are 35, 86 and 93 years old. The soil of the shelters is sand and they are located farthest from the Duero River. The grapes ripen as whole bunches for 15 days in steel tanks. The wine matures for 6-8 months in oak barrels of different sizes.
Use: As a partner for robust meat terrines.
Description: A youthful fragrance with plenty of dark fruit. The taste is dense, captured by noticeable acidity and elegant.
