Gago is the second wine made in Toro by Telmo Rodriguez. The 19th-century, lowercase-"g" typeface, which appears on all wines made in Toro, is transformed and modernized by a bull horn. The distinctive red soils of Toro help produce this wine with tremendous fruit concentration, ripeness, acidity, tannins, and structure.

100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). Produced by Companyia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez. In 1994, Pablo Eguzkiza and Telmo Rodriguez, along with a third oenologist, created a Garnacha from old bush vineyards in Navarra. The wine was called Alma (soul). This is how the business started, originally under the name of Companyia de Vinos de La Granja. The name was a declaration of intent: it made it clear that the company would be producing more wines in the future and contained a homage to La Granja, the famous glassworks, a center of outstanding Spanish craftwork that has all but disappeared. The Telmo Rodriguez estate in Toro is named after a Spanish breed of bull that is both elegant and powerful. Along with a few other notable winemakers, Telmo was one of the first to rediscover vineyards of decades-old, bush-trained vineyards. He was a major force in elevating Toro to one of the most in vogue wine regions of Spain.
