James Suckling 96 points - TOP 100 SPANISH WINES OF 2017 #28 - An instantly polished impression on the nose with lively dark plum and black cherry fruits swathed in spicy complexity. The texture is seamless, saturated in energetic dark plum fruit flavor. A great wine. Try from 2020..January/2018 Numanthia is situated in north western Spain's Castilla y León region, close to the Portuguese border. The heart of the region and home to the vineyards is Toro, a region of long standing winemaking tradition going back to ancient Roman times. It is crossed by the Río Duero, which also links such great wine-producing areas as Ribera del Duero, Rueda, and the Porto region of Portugal.
