Tasting Notes


The project of importer Jorge Ordonez, the 2000 Numanthia (100% Tinta de Toro from 70-100-year old vines) was produced from meager yields of one ton of fruit per acre. It spent 19 months in new French oak, with malolactic in barrel, and neither fining nor filtration. This is a massive, dense ruby/purple-colored effort that needs 3-4 years to strut its stuff. Thick, juicy, and concentrated, it displays notes of creme de cassis, melted licorice, spice box, and earth. It is an impressive, pure, layered wine to drink between 2006-2017.

The Winery


As one of the breakthrough producers of the Toro region in northwest Spain, Numanthia is a producer well-known for their bottles made from Tempranillo. Named after the neighboring town of Numancia, this producer is credited to playing a key role in bringing the region into the international spotlight. The 130 year old vines are dispersed across numerous small plots on the hilly, dry soils along the banks of the cherished Duero River- near the Portuguese border. Numanthia is most well-known for its Termanthia wine which is made from a single 11-acre parcel of 120-year-old vines, and although the estate was originally founded in 1998, it has been owned by LVMH since 2008.
