Bodegas Frontaura wines, in the Appellation of Origin Toro, continue to offer many joys and conquering the palates of specialized prescribers, as well as the final client.
Peñín Guide has just published the scores of its new edition, which show that the wines from Toro continue with a great level. Aponte Plus 2008, has reached 94 points, a wine with 22 months of aging in French oak barrels and made with Tinta de Toro from near hundred-years-old vines of very low yield.
The Peñín Guide team have given 93 points for both Aponte Reserva 2008, Great Gold Medal in the Brussels World Contest, and Frontaura Reserva 2006. In the case of Aponte Reserva, the alcoholic fermentation is made directly in wooden tanks, after it ages for about 18 months in French oak barrels. Frontaura Reserva does the fermentation in concrete tanks and a stay in French barrels also 18 months.
Dominio de Valdelacasa 2010, the youngest of Toro wines, has reached 91 points in the Peñín Guide, a wine that stands out for its elegance, freshness and liquorice touches.
Once again, the wines of Bodegas Frontaura caused good sensations in the most relevant specialized publications. A few weeks ago, the journalist Carlos Delgado in El País also valued with 9.4 / 10 the wine Aponte 2008, which he described as "A red Toro that invites you to enter a fascinating landscape."
