Natural Red Wine

In addition to his single-vineyard and village wines, Álvar makes his Tío Uco cuvée. Fashioned from three plots of vines located in the northwestern part of Toro. Ranging in age from 35–93 years old, these Tinta de Toro vines (as Tempranillo is known in these parts) are grown on various soils. Named Tío Uco, this wine, like those from his single vineyards, is made from biodynamically farmed fruit, is fermented whole cluster with indigenous yeasts, and sees only a gentle maceration. It’s aged primarily in neutral French oak barrels ranging in size from 300-1000 liters. It's the opening salvo of his limited production and delivers a real wine at a really beautiful price point.
