Volvoreta Toro Tinto L'Amphore 2011
This is a very special winery; a typical for Toro. These are must have wines.
Vino Volvoreta is a small family producer located fifteen minutes outside of the town of Zamora, and was the first organic bodega in the D.O. of Toro to make their wines following organic principles. Antonio Alfonso grew up making wine with his father, and now has passed on the winemaking duties to his daughter Maria, among the youngest winemakers in Spain. The estate farms 15 Hectares of vineyards within their 100 hectares of organic property high in the sun-scorched hills of the region. The land is sublime. Forests, wild herbs, lots of insects and birds; Volvoreta (Gallego for 'butterfly') works with all of nature to create their exceptional quality wines. The winery has received a lot of press recently for their focus and dedication; true models for the 'slow wine' movement.
Vina Zangarron (Volvoreta) is a pioneer in organic farming in the Toro region and is experimenting with amphorae and bottling some of their wines without any added sulfur.” -Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
