On the shores of the Duero River, in the Spanish province of Zamora, stretches the wine region of Toro, at whose heart lies the Bodega Numanthia winery.
The name of the estate comes from the history of resilience and resistance of the city of Numancia, which heroically resisted the invasion of the Roman troops for almost a century. A resilience that recalls the resilience of the winery's Tinta de Toro vineyards, some of the oldest in the world, ranging in age from 30 to 200 years old. Sculpted by time, these ungrafted vineyards miraculously survived not only the phylloxera epidemic that decimated European vineyards in the 19th century, but also decades of climatic extremes, enduring severe winters and scorching summers.
Toro's century-old vineyards require meticulous, scrupulous and highly personalized care. Over the years, these vines have developed a capacity for balance in all circumstances, producing grapes of uncommon quality. Their yields, among the lowest in the world, are the guarantee of exceptional aromatic concentration. Tinta de Toro is extremely tannic, powerful and difficult to handle. Some ancestral viticultural practices, such as the particular pruning techniques of the region's centuries-old vineyards, have been passed down to the estate by local winegrower families, who have worked hand in hand with Bodega Numanthia for several generations.
Respect for this knowledge, combined with the expert hands of the oenologists at Bodega Numanthia, reveals the exquisiteness and elegance of Tinta de Toro and shapes three fundamentally different expressions: Termes, Numanthia and Termanthia.
