Overview

Celsus comes from a single plot of Tinta de Toro named Camparrón which was planted around 1920. The soils here are sandy and these vines are ungrafted and planted at a time where there was a wide massale diversity present in the vineyards of Toro. As such, it is a unique opportunity to taste an ancestral terroir made from grapes that are harvested by hand, carefully destemmed to keep the berries intact, and fermented in a small temperature-controlled stainless steel tank, followed by aging in French oak barrels for 14 months before bottling.
