Found 22nd Dec 2013
Tonnes on the shelf in blackwater. Gave it a bash yesterday.......2 bottles later decided I should definitely get some more so just picked up a case of 6.

lovely flavour, not bitter or rough at all. highly recommended at this price!

also doing a rose and white at this price although havent tried so cant say whether they are decent or not.

Normal price - I often get this and a white, both pretty good!

Try the Spanish Toro Loco red at £3.69. In my view the best value wine at the moment though will try this Italian red.

Thanks op

Have tried this and do not like it.The Merlo at £3.29 is excellent.

the toro loco wss a fiver in my local. appreciate this may not be everyones cup o tea but for a bottle of table red when you have a dozen people at christmas, perfectly acceptable especially at under 3 quid

wardo85 was that the special edition Toro Loco ?
Thinking of getting a bottle for christmas day dinner to try that out.The Toscana Rosso is very drinkable too at under a fiver.

£2-90 something uk duty on a bottle of wine.So how much are you actually paying for the liquid ?
But wine is wine we all have different tastes, but from opening a bottle of red and drinking straight away to letting it breath a getting to room temperature could taste like two different bottles ...I use a decanter and one of these gadgets http://www.holmfirthvineyard.com/product.php/26/0/vinturi_wine_aerator() to speed things up Happy Xmas

I just use a huge bulbous type glass, but agree about the room temperature remark.

Thanks OP, will give it a try. The Toro Loco beat a £30 a bottle Barolo in a competition not too long back.

Source? I'd love to read this.

Looks like an alright price for making the gravy with, will try and pick up a bottle of this last minute tomorrow...

I'll be the only drinking red wine on Christmas Day in our house so treated myself to a nice bottle of Chateauneuf du pape on offer.

Well, it is Christmas!
