IconTermanthia is the ultimate expression of the best vineyard in the Toro Designation: Teso de los Carriles. From hand de-stemming to foot-crushing, creating wine with these unique grapes involves hand-crafting excellence and meticulous know-how. The sublime fruit concentration unveils a magnificent aromatic complexity and reveals incredible intensity and elegance.
A hidden treasure can be found at the boundary of this age-old estate: a 16th-century church, built by Rodrigo Gil de Hontañon, architect to the Catholic Monarchs. The building is at the top of the village of Valdefinjas, and had been in ruins since the 1970s. A renovation project was financed by the estate in order to restore this architectural gem. Work was carried out on the walls, the structure and the roof, to prevent it from collapsing completely. In seven months, the church’s exterior was returned practically to its original state. The inside houses some wonderful treasures including the sacristy floor from the 13th century, and a magnificent cupola carved into the stone. This outstanding discovery, revealed to local residents during an organized tour, has energized the village and offered the estate a priceless historical treasure.
