This wonderful crianza produced by Bodegas Frontaura utilizes a mix of the famous Tinto de Toro with the crianza grape. Produced in the Toro region of Spain, this wine boasts bold flavors with heavy emphasis on dark fruit notes. What makes this crianza particularly unique is the earthiness that drinkers around the world will appreciate.
This wine is bold in flavor, which is typical for the region from which it hails. It has wonderful tannin to it and is quite dry. There is a little sweetness as well which helps to balance the dryness. Like other wines from Bodegas Frontaura, you will notice a great balance between acidity and softness. To the eye: Deep ruby red with playful purple undertones in the right light. On the nose: berries and spiced. It is very floral. On the palate. Medium bodied wine with full, bold flavors. Dark red fruits such as cherry and plum shine through here. Thoughts of oak from the barrels and hints of tobacco, chocolate, and vanilla also bubble up. This wine also boasts a long lasting aftertaste.
As with other reds, this wine matches well with beef, lamb, and chicken (in heavier sauces). However, this wine actually pairs perfectly with paella. Try pairing this with paella negra and see how the deep flavors of the wine complement the dish perfectly.
