Smoky, spicy notes mingle in this plush, modern red, framing cocoa, blackberry, tar and licorice flavors. A firm backbone supports the velvety texture, and luscious fruit balances high alcohol on the long finish. Best from 2012 through 2020.
– 93 points (Wine Spectator)
The 2009 Victorino does not possess the same clarity as the 2010 and seemed a little subdued on this occasion. The palate is full-bodied, spicy and demonstrative in the mouth, the tannins broader and more assertive than the 2010. If you prefer more hedonistic wines I would opt for the 2009, although the 2010 offers more finesse and composure. Drink 2014-2020.

About Teso La Monja:
Teso La Monja is a project of the renowned Eguren Family who have many generations producing wine in Rioja unders the wineries of Sierra Cantabria, San Vicente and the latest Viñ±edos de Páganos. They founded in Toro the Numanthia winery which obtained the highest rating (a 100 point wine) with Robert Parker. Then they sold the winery to Louis Vouiton, Moet, Hennessy Group (LVMH). Having achieved a lot of knowledge in the area, the Eguren family decided to found a second winery in Toro putting in all what they learned at Numanthia making now more elegant wines than powerful. Their key is making voluptuos wines with impressive balance. Toro is a region who produce powerful and rustic wines but the ones of Teso la Monja have an undeniable elegance and smoothness.
