Winery & Vintage Info

Finca Constancia is situated close to Toledo, a city with over 2000 years of history. Known as ‚ÄúThe Imperial City ‚Äú, Toledo was the home of the Spanish Royal Court during the reign of Carlos I. It is also known as ‚ÄúThe City of Three Cultures ‚ÄĚ having been host to Christians, Jews and Muslims, who lived together in harmony, for centuries. Toledo has been a World Heritage City since 1986.

Altozano is a Finca Constancia wine with firm roots in Toledo. The packaging was designed to represent the icons of the medieval city, maintain a distinct personality and enhance the sense of origin. Altozano, means a natural elevation of the land (Toledo in Roman times was called Toletum which means ‚Äúlifted up‚ÄĚ). Toledo has always been a cultural centre important for trade and craftsmen. The literati, horsemen and goldsmiths have populated Toledo‚Äôs streets through time and Altozano pays tribute to them.

Toledan steel was very popular and used to manufacture weapons, especially swords, during the era of the Spanish Empire. Currently, Toledo’s streets are full of craft shops where you can still buy swords and daggers, which have become one of the city’s symbols.

The Altozano Tempranillo 2022 vintage wine is made from carefully selected plots. Under the guidance of winemaker Beatriz Paniagua, as always, the selection process begins in the vineyard, where we seek out the fruit that reflects the personality of our Tempranillo grapes.

The grapes were harvested during the night to protect them from September’s high daytime temperatures. Upon arrival at the winery they were macerated, cold, prior to fermentation, spending five days in contact with their marc to ensure that as much of the fruit aromas as possible were retained and the maximum colour was extracted. After undergoing alcoholic and malolactic fermentation the wines personality was fine- tuned through three months ageing in French and American oak barrels. Winery Notes
