Bodegas Cepa 21 Hito Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2018: The word “HITO” means stone post, any element which serves to indicate the direction or distance on the roads as serving to delimit boundaries of the land.

Teso La Monja Romanico 2016: Tinta de Toro is a Spanish grape variety grown in the region of Toro. Its origins date back to Romans times around 2nd century B.C.
After the plague of phylloxera in the 19th century Tinta de Toro managed to survive this disease and many vines in the region are old vines over 200 years old.
As a curiosity, the wine made of Tinta de Toro was the drink chosen for Christopher Columbus’ trip to America. Fray Diego de Deza, original from Toro and private confessor of Elizabeth the Queen (Isabel la Catolica), knew about the properties of this wine (strong alcoholic content and a great capacity for lasting) and chose it for the trip of Columbus to the “Indies”.
In fact, due to the great amount of red wine, one of the ships was named“La Pinta”, because the cellars of the ship were full of this red wine.
Romanico by Teso La Monja is expressive, direct, and accessible, while still representing the varietal character of Tinta de Toro and the unique terroir of D.O. Toro. Well received by wine critics with 93 points by James Suckling as well as 90 points by Jeff Dunnuck and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate.
When it was formed, D.O. Priorat ignored twelve villages that belonged to the historic Priorat region and Cataluña. These twelve towns now form D.O. Montsant, a region tied to Cataluña’s culture and history. All of the vineyards are controlled completely distinctly and individually, in order to take advantage of the characteristics that the different terrains contribute to the Garnacha and other grapes. Similarly, the wine is vinified in separate, distinct lots separated by the zones that the grapes are sourced from. This extracts the different qualities of each soil – the fruit forward nature of the fruit sourced from the sandy soils, the complexity and concentration of licorella, and the structure of the limestone soils. The best lots of each vinification are blended after in order to obtain this unique wine, which demonstrates the range of qualities of the terroir of Montsant.
