2019 Teso la Monja Magnum
This top Spanish wine is produced by Teso La Monja winery, an exclusive winery, one of the beautiful wineries of Hermanos Eguren. Only 50 magnum bottles were made of the bodega's top brand - the Teso de Monja in Magnum bottle - the Teso de Monja. The wine comes from a cool vineyard of only 1.8 HA on which there are extremely old vines (150 years and older - pre-phylloxera) that give an incredibly high ripeness. The bunches are picked and selected per grape and destemmed and crushed manually by a team of 55 very experienced people who do this every year. The wine ferments in an open-topped oak barrel followed by malolactic fermentation in an egg-shaped oak barrel. It matures in three brand new Bordeaux barrels for approximately 24 months. This top wine from Teso La Monja has an unprecedented amount of layers. With every sniff and sip something different emerges such as herbs, smoke, toast, balsamic notes of incense and cigars. Red and black fruit and oak also return in the mouth with an amazing aftertaste.
The 2019 vintage is a very limited edition of 869 numbered bottles and 75 magnum bottles

The Spanish winery Teso La Monja is located in the Toro. The winery heralds a new era for the Eguren family in DO Toro, a land from which she fell in love with the capacity of the old pre-phylloxera vines. Teso La Monja was founded in 2007. Wines that bring the potential of the Tinta de Toro with elegance, finesse and freshness, shared by all wines of the Eguren family attributes. The Almirez, Victorino and also the great Romanico (unprecedented good value for money in our opinion) are invariably 90+ Parker and Penin wines. Not surprising knowing that the Eguren family is also behind the Alabaster cult wine.
The Teso La Monja winery is located on north-facing loam soils with gravel on the surface, providing longer vegetative cycles for achieving balanced, powerful yet elegant wines that convey the maximum potential of soil minerality.
