Estancia Piedra was born from a family dream, a family who wanted to turn their passion into reality: to produce excellent quality wines.
The vineyard was planted in 1968, and is the largest parcel of old vines in the Toro D.O. The Estancia Piedra team of highly qualified professionals ensure that their passion for wine is reflected every day in a quality product, a wine that represents the character of the Duero region.
Their winery, situated in the Guareña valley in the heart of the Toro D.O., specializes in enotourism.
Piedra wines have been created to delight the senses, to celebrate life and friendship. With a wide range in continuous expansion, these wines adapt to the tastes of a wide variety of palates. From young and natural wines made without sulphites or any additive treatment, to wines that appreciate the value of time and maturity, which express the best of a very old vineyard in the Toro region – “Wines proud of their origin.”
It is a modern trellised vineyard with an age of more than 20 years. The characteristics of the soil and the climate make this 100% Tinta de Toro wine, a unique and differentiated wine.
The soil is stony alluvium, with a sandy surface, light and poor in organic matter with a clay subsoil that helps maintain the little water that the area receives. Its continental climate, influenced by the Atlantic, along with its location at an altitude of 330m above sea level, cause huge diurnal variations in temperature. With long, cold winters, and short but intense summers.
The Cantadal vineyard is made up of 8.80 Ha of Tinta de Toro and Garnacha and was planted in 2001. Plantation spacing 3m × 1.5m.
Reception at the winery with strict quality control. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 25ºC, followed by malolactic fermentation in the tank.
No oak maturation and bottled with minimal filtration. Certified organic.
This young wine has a lovely perfumed aroma of fresh strawberry and currants. Elegant and fresh on the palate with more red fruit flavours. Well balanced to the finish which creates a very easy drinking wine.
Barbequed lamb kebabs.
Drink in its youth, or within 2 years.
