Vetus es un vino de finca, fiel reflejo del viñedo donde nace. Se elabora con una selección de las zonas más especiales de la finca que rodea a la bodega. Es un Toro complejo, con buena carga de aromas balsámicos y especiados y una boca equilibrada, envolvente y pulida, con los taninos lo suficientemente domados como para entregar una astringencia amable.

The eponymous red 2016 Vetus was cropped from a cooler and wetter year that resulted in a large crop and late ripening. It was produced with fruit from old, head-pruned vines, some ungrafted. They didn't produce the top-of-the-range Celsus in 2016, so those grapes contributed to this cuvée. It fermented in small tanks and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year. I felt less noticeable and better-integrated oak here than in previous vintages. It also has the freshness of the 2016 vintage, with fine, chalky tannins and a supple finish. It should develop nicely in bottle. 16,000 bottles were filled in June 2018.
A bright and juicy Toro with vibrant, ripe dark cherries and berries on offer. Plenty to offer on the palate. Plush mulberries, plums and blueberries. Drink or hold.
