Miguel Torres Sangre de Toro
First made in 1954, Sangre de Toro is the first bottled release from Spanish wine giant Torres. Each of the bottle design features a red bull or ‘Toro’ in Spanish, which honors its home country, Spain, known for its bull fighting, and is of course topical for Chinese Year of Ox.
The wine was created by Miguel Torres Carbó (third generation family member) who searched through Catalonia to find the best grapes for Sangre de Toro, now a popular everyday wine. He eventually selected Garnacha and Cariñena tto create a fruit forward and approachable red.
Given its competitive price points, we reckon the red wine might be passed around at many dinner tables during the festive season.
