Ficha técnica

Alabaster

  • Añada: 2012

  • Variedades: Tinta de Toro 100%.

  • Nota de cata: Gran vino de Toro, elegante y delicado como el alabastro, del que toma el nombre en honor a los envases en que los griegos y egipcios almacenaban sus mejores perfumes y esencias. Elaborado con Tinta de Toro procedente de viñas muy viejas, prefiloxéricas, con muy bajo rendimiento. Vendimia cuidadosamente seleccionada. A su llegada a la bodega, el grano es seleccionado grano a grano y despalillado manualmente. Fermentación en depósitos abiertos con suaves remontados. Fermentación y crianza en barricas nuevas de roble francés donde permanece durante 18 meses. Intenso y profundo color picota, oscuro. Limpio y muy brillante. Elegante lágrima de caída lenta. En nariz enseña aromas intensos, concentrados, con una enorme y placentera carga frutal, con mucha fruta negra muy madura, pura confitura, entremezclada con intensas sensaciones cremosas y lácticas y con elegantes maderas, grandes toques minerales. De fondo, ligeros aromas florales. En boca es poderoso, contundente, elegante, serio. Con mucho volumen y un gran cuerpo. Textura sedosa. Largo recorrido muy sabroso, carnoso, llena de confitura de fruta negra llena de matices. Excelente acidez. Taninos maduros, agradables y a los que les falta algo por pulir. Final muy largo y muy persistente. Un gran vino que no olvidaremos. Para disfrutarlo lentamente.

  • Maridaje: Carnes rojas asadas, civet, caza mayor, caza de pelo...

  • Temperatura de servicio: Servir entre 15 y 17ºC.

  • Wine Advocate #211 - October 2015 - Luis Gutierrez: 95 pts - "The 2012 Alabaster is produced with the fruit of three plots (Valmediano, La Jara and Marinacea) of over 100-year-old, ungrafted and dry farmed Tempranillo vineyards in Toro, totaling 11.5 hectares. The bunches were hand-destemmed and the grapes fermented in open top vats with foot treading and soft pumping over. Malolactic fermentation was carried out in new French oak barriques where the wine matured for 18 months. I visited the Valmediano vineyard, at some 700 meters altitude; it is an ancient plot surrounded by pine trees where the main enemy are rabbits that eat all the leaves, grapes and branches from a handful of vines. The three vineyards are different and complement each other. What I liked about the 2012 was the sense of harmony and the subtlety to the aromas; everything is there, but nothing takes the leading role and the wine shows itself compact and as one, perfectly in synchronicity. There is something that made me think of Bordeaux here, perhaps that combination of energy, power and elegance. The palate is really balanced with ultra-refined tannins and a fine thread of acidity going through the core that is long and persistent. This wine is subtle, complex and elegant. This is the best wine I've ever tasted from Teso La Monja. As a reference, I tasted the 2010 that is also a superb vintage from Alabaster side by side with this, and there is one extra degree of depth and subtlety in this 2012. The 2010 is aging at glacial pace, and I don't see why the 2012 should age any faster, but it's approachable now and I think it should be pleasurable throughout its life. Only 4,000 bottles were filled in June 2014."

  • International Wine Cellar - September/October 2014 - Stephen Tanzer: 95 pts - "(malo and 18 months of aging in small, new French oak barrels): Bright purple. Deeply scented spice- and smoke-accented aromas of ripe cherries, boysenberry and cassis, lifted by a suave floral element. Shows impressive depth and vivacity to its black and blue fruit liqueur flavors sharpened by juicy acidity; a smoky mineral quality ad
