Piedra Crianza 2015 DO Toro
Attractive intense, clear, bright cherry red core colour, with garnet hints on the rim.
The nose is complex with an abundance of ripe red fruits layered over spiced and toasty notes.
Unctuous and full of flavour on the palate, where the fruit notes shine through.
This is a structured wine with noble tannins and a long, aromatic finish.
