Review Gran Sangre de Toro wine from Bodegas Torres:
Small disappointment I've been with this wine ...
What was intended as an evolution and a wine called to make a new line of the winery, it has proved to be a correct wine. No more.
With a character and a very strong flavor, untamed, wild.
Alcohol is very present in the note and the long aging wine does not appear softening the broth.
Disappointment .... And to try new vintages to see its evolution.
