oro, in the western reaches of Spain, is one of several wine growing regions located in and influenced by the Duero Valley. Soils of brown limestone with sandy sediment and a long, dry growing season have produced intense, highly prized wines from the local grapes (mostly Tinto de Toro, a variant of Tempranillo) for several thousand years.

Dried red fruit and a background of spice and earth highlight rich body and firm tannins. Excellent with roasted meats and game.
