Telmo Rodriguez 'Dehesa Gago' Tinta de Toro 2018
'It impressed (Huon) Hooke, who found: "A reductive, sweaty aroma with overlying cherry-pip fruit, straightforward and callow. The wine is very firm and tightly compacted, the tannins grippy with a trace of bitterness. overall, the wine is raw and primary and needs more time. It has intensity and some persistence, though. A bold and gutsy wine that would stand up well to hearty foods." I agreed, noting its fresh raspberry and blueberry aromas and the vigorous palate. Despite the distinct crunch of tannin and acidity, there's suppleness, too. It does need time.' Nick Bullied MW, Gourmet Wine Traveller (Aug/Sept 2020).
