Telmo Rodriguez g Dehesa Gago 2015

Toro, Castilla-Leon, SpainI’ll never forget the first time I met with Toro producers back in the formative days of the DO in the late 1980s. Rustic would best describe the tasting that day, a far cry from this 2015 Gago. Despite the weighty reputation of Toro reds, Gago has that Rodriguez finesse and style, offering up a sense of elegance along with some delicious juicy, savoury, pipe tobacco-scented fruit flecked with vanilla orange peel, licorice, cardamom, coriander. Certainly among the best wines of Toro. Pork would be a good bet here as would grilled beef or lamb.Tasted: 16 September 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: ON 27.95 consignment - Lifford Wines and Spirits Producer: Compañia de Vinos Telmo RodriguezDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
