REGION: Toro, Spain
VARIETIES: Tinta de Toro
Pago de Cubas was formed out of a desire of a group of businessmen to highlight the potential of the region of Toro to those who were “lncredulo”. Long considered a lowly cousin to its more illustrious neighbours both further up and down the river Duero (Douro in Portugal, and Ribero del Duero in Spain), with careful management of ripeness, the crazy daily temperature variations means great structure and acidity can still be kept. These are wines which really surprise.
