T2012 marks the 70th Anniversary of Bodegas Farina. To celebrate 70 years of making wines in the region of TORO, we have released a very special wine which takes its name from the birthday we are celebrating – 70 Aniversario. Made from 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) from selected vineyards over 50 years old and aged in premium french and american oak barrels for 12 months, it is big yet velvety with lushes of pure ripe berry fruits, very subtle hints of oak and a super long soft palate. The idea is to offer to all those who have supported the Fariña family the opportunity to join in our celebrations with an amazing wine at half the price. It is currently being released throughout the world. For more information on this wine please visit the wine section at www.bodegasfarina.com.
Here is Rosa Gonzalez, food and wine journalist based in Puerto Rico and her comments on the wine.
