You’ll taste/smell: Tío Uco is a very juicy, fruity, refreshing, and tasty wine. Produced with grapes from vines aged from 35 to 93 years old, this unassuming wine packs a lot of complexity. A wine that captures the new airs of Toro, without the price tag.
Good to have it with: it’s a good food wine try fried polenta, pork dishes, lasagna or fried chicken. It will go well with a variety of food.

The Producer: Alvar de Dios
In addition to his single-vineyard wines, Alvar makes wine from three plots of vines and some purchased fruit located in the northwestern part of Toro. Ranging in age from 25–40 years old, these Tempranillo and Garnacha vines are grown on a variety of sandy soils. Named Tio Uco, this wine like those from his single vineyards, is made from organically farmed grapes, fermented whole cluster with indigenous yeasts, sees only a gentle maceration with pigeage by foot, and is aged primarily in neutral French oak foudres ranging in size from 1000-3500L. Formerly pure Tempranillo, Tio Uco since the 2016 vintage includes about 10% Garnacha in the final blend.
