Vinos La Zorra Ituero 2019

Vinos La Zorra Ituero 2019

94 Points ABC Wine Guide - Double Gold Vinduero-Vindouro International Competition 2019. The flagship wine of Vinos La Zorra, Ituero is a 100% varietal wine using the rare Rufete grape, championed by La Zorra. The grapes are sourced from the Ituero vineyard, which has an altitude of 890 meters (essential in warmer climates to maintain freshness) and was planted back in 1930. Careful selection of the delicate grapes, fermentation in used French oak barrels and extended bottle ageing before release ensures a wine bursting with complex aromas and balanced with freshness and texture. This is a consistently highly regarded wine by the international wine press and one that we are sure will be enjoyed by all.

Tasting Notes
Cardinal red in colour with bluish edges. Clean and bright. Medium intensity in the glass with notes of peanut shell and vegetables. Crisp aromas with notes of mint, tobacco and balsamic vinegar. Balanced, silky and buttery it is very pleasant on the palate with a well-rounded finish of caramel and toffee.

About the Producer

From the forested Sierra de Francia in the province of Salamanca, 250km west of Madrid, Mogarraz, is one of the most picturesque villages in Spain. Wine is in the blood of the Maíllo family, and it was the current owner, Agustin Maillo who turned the family cellar into the commercial producer of Vinos La Zorra whose passion, amongst others, is Rufete, a rare and an interesting indigenous grape variety from the Sierra de Francia and is the best guarded secret in the DO Sierra de Salamanca. 

The Sierra de Francia has a long tradition of winemaking, and although the DO Sierra de Salamanca is relatively young designated wine region, wine has been made here for over 2000 years, and amongst the slopes of San Esteban, you can find pre-Roman cave presses.
