This Flor de Vetus Tinto from Bodegas Vetus comes from the vineyards of the Bodega located in the DO Toro, planted in 1990. The vineyards are around 20 hectares and are located at an altitude of 700 meters. The climate is continental with influence from the sea. Vetus comes from the Latin word veto - vetare, which means 'forbidden, not allowed'.

Vetus is located in the heart of the rapidly emerging Toro wine region. It is an example of the potential of this region and the modern wines that are made there. Lots of fruit and concentration. The Artevino Group (Vina Izadi, Villacreces, Orben) collaborates with Bodegas Vetus in Toro to make wines based on the Tinta de Toro grape (the local Tempranillo). The favorite Pruno wine is the brother (or sister) of the Vetus. The Vetus is made from 100% Tinta de Fino (Tempranillo clone) which is fermented after picking in stainless steel tanks - temperature regulated. The wine then matures for 9-10 months in 50% American oak, 50% French, of which 50% is new oak and 50% second year.

The Flor de Vetus Tinto has a full red color with purple shades. The wine is medium to full bodied with red and black ripe fruit in the nose. We smell notes of licorice, herbs, coffee and caramel. The mouth is powerful and fresh at the same time. Very structured and we were surprised that this Toro wine has a beautiful acidity. Clearly a modern Toro style with fruit in the foreground. The wine is well structured and perfectly balanced wine with an excellent aftertaste.

FACT: In the Tab: Appendix you will find the official fact sheet of this beautiful wine. We will send it to you automatically when you order this wine. The wine is in our conditioned Wine Warehouse and if you pick up the wine you will also receive a nice discount.
