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 “lifted up”). Toledo has always been a cultural centre important for trade and craftsmen. The literati, horsemen and goldsmiths have populated Toledo’s 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.
This wine is made from Tempranillo grapes from carefully selected plots. Under the guidance of our 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.
Once they have reached their optimum point of ripeness, the gapes that have been pre- selected in the vineyard are picked during the night. Prior to alcoholic fermentation they are cold macerated, at 5oC, in contact with their skins so as to retain the fruit aromas and produce a bright, intense colour. Winery Notes
