The 2016 Gago from Toro was surprisingly elegant. It matures in foudres that were bought in the year 2000 and by now are well seasoned and neutral and seem to respect the wine and do not lend aromas or flavors to it, so the wine comes through as very pure and fresh. The year was rainy and fresh. The tannins are surprisingly elegant, and there's none of that rusticity often associated with Toro. One of the finest vintages for Gago.
