Sangre de Toro wine Review
4.20 Euro, a 7.3/10 for us
Sangre de Toro is a classic and is found throughout the world. I used to buy this all the time back in Canada and it was synonymous with Spanish wine at that time. It is still a classic: a dependably good, hearty wine that you’ll always enjoy.
Sangre de Toro is produced by Familia Torres, one of Spain’s largest wine producers (both nationally and internationally). Interestingly, their base is not La Rioja or Ribera del Duero, but the town of Vilafranca del Penedès just outside Barcelona. And the “Original” bottle of Sangre de Toro that you’ll find is not made out of Tempranillo grapes but rather out of Garnacha (Grenache) and Cariñera grapes.
Description: the Sangre de Toro (“Sangre de Toro Edición Limitada”) I had above was different from the “original” Sangre de Toro. It’s from La Rioja (Torres has vineyards there too) and is made from Tempranillo grapes. Funny enough it’s like every Sangre de Toro wine I’ve ever had: full bodied and fruity. Maybe not spectacular, but a good wine.
Value: at 4.20 Euros (can vary depending on where you buy it) Sangre de Toro is always good value.
