Criticism

Luis Gutierréz, Robert Parker's critic, wrote in 2021:

"The entry-level red wine is the Prima 2018, which comes from a cool and rainy year that produced a good harvest and was picked from 12 September. It is a blend of Tinta de Toro (also known as Tempranillo) and 15% Garnacha and other varieties. It was fermented in 12,500-litre stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts and matured for 14 months in oak barrels and casks. It is creamy but has more integrated oak as they no longer use 225 litre barrels. It has an approachable, aromatic and floral profile, is juicy and has a succulent palate. It is fruit-driven and has been refined by a year in the bottle. This is certainly one of the best Primas available. 200,000 bottles were produced. It was bottled in May 2020.

San Román is the project of the García family in Toro, known for their Mauro. Their vineyards are now certified organic and since 2016 they have also been working with biodynamic cultivation - and this is no small feat, as they have 140 hectares in the villages of San Román de Hornija, Villaester and Morales de Toro. They currently produce 300,000 bottles. There is a new grape variety, Garnacha, as the grape variety has finally been authorised by the Designation of Origin for single-varietal wines."
