K&L Notes

Aciano is a three-hectare (seven-plus acres) Tinta de Toro vineyard, in the vicinity of El Pego in the southern part of DO Toro, that Alvar de Dios inherited from his grandfather. The soils here are unique for the appellation, being entirely sandy. It is for this reason that these ungrafted vines, planted in 1919, have survived phylloxera and are capable of producing an uncharacteristic style of wine for Toro – perfumed, lifted and elegant rather than more typical style of the DO. Aciano was the nickname for Alvar’s grandfather and this wine is named in his honor.

    Toro, the region came to fame in the 90’s making wines that were dark, powerful, extracted and oaky. They were and are impressive wines that make a big impression. Alvar de Dios Hernandez inherited a small parcel in this famed region about a decade ago, a great inheritance 90 year old Tempranillo vines that are ungrafted planted in uniquely sandy soils. Alvar in more interested in elegance and expressiveness so maximum effort goes into minimal intervention. The classic dark fruit is lifted and enhanced and the richness is balance with freshness as opposed to oak.
