2010 BODEGA NUMANTHIA “NUMANTHIA” TORO

$60.00 $39.99 $39.99

Riveting, enchanting and surreal would all be excellent descriptors for the 2010 Numanthia. The Estate’s signature wine, Numanthia is named after an ancient Spanish city said to have resisted Roman invasion for 20 years. An icon in the Spanish region of Toro, an area located on the Northwestern side of Spain, Bodega Numanthia was founded in 1998 and instantly became one of the reference standards of Toro. This 100% Tempranillo is remarkably deep and persistent, etching flavors of cherry pipe tobacco, cardamom, roasted almonds and sweet spices.  Earning high scores from Robert Parker, James Suckling and the Wine Enthusiast… This beauty deserves a spot in your cellar.

Cast from ancient vines, including an exceptional parcel of 120-year-old un-grafted vines that had resisted phylloxera with the resilience of those ancient Spanish soldiers. Created in a modern style and with Numanthia’s signature use of 100% New French oak barrels, the 2010 has developed beautifully in the bottle and is absolutely enchanting to taste.  Normally around $60/btl retail, at $39.99/btl this wine shouldn’t be missed.

Description

2010 BODEGA NUMANTHIA “NUMANTHIA” TORO

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2010 Numanthia comes from a cooler vintage than the 2009 – a season when Manuel Louzada told me that he had to wear a pullover in the vineyard during picking! It is aged for 21 months in new French oak. The bouquet demonstrates more fruit concentration and clarity than the 2009, the 0.5% less alcohol making a tangible difference. The aromatics are more Medoc-like than the 2009. The palate is full-bodied with mouth-gripping tannins, yet it has a silky smooth texture. There is real attack on the mid-palate, perhaps a little more vigor and tension with hints of graphite and sous-bois towards the strict finish. This is due to be launched in September 2013 and should be at the top of any Toro-lovers’ list – maybe even above Termanthia? Drink 2018-2028+.” 94 Points

From James Suckling, “Subtle and perfumed with violet, stone, dark fruit and mushroom. Full body, firm and linear tannins and a long and rich finish. Powerful. Flashy and stylish. Drink or hold.” 94 Points
