Along with the 2015, I also tasted the following vintage of the top Toro red, the 2016 Aciano, which has a spectacular nose, with plenty of aromatic herbs, wild berries and flowers, with contained ripeness and great freshness. The palate has chalky minerality and a dry mouthfeel. The soils are very sandy, and phylloxera never attacked the vines in the village of El Pego. The wine is serious, delicious and has an austere mouthfeel, with those grainy, sandy tannins. This feels like a much more expensive wine. 7,500 bottles were filled in January 2018, from a year that delivered very good quality and quantity.
