92 points James Suckling: "A bright and fresh red for Toro with blackberry, crushed-stone, dried-soil and terra-cotta aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Fruity and lively. Try this, if you want to understand drinkability from Toro. Drink now. (7/26/19)"

90 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "The very affordable 2017 Románico was cropped from one of the earliest harvests ever. It was produced with the grapes from younger vineyards, 10 to 35 years old, fermented with their own strain of yeasts and matured in second use French oak barrels and tank (some 40% of the volume) for some six months on average, depending on the lot. It's a fruit-driven, happy and expressive Tempranillo, with a mixture of red and black fruit. It has a soft palate with a tender texture, juicy and very tasty. 150,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2019. Drink: 2020-2023. (Dec 2019)"

: "The value-priced 2017 Romanico checks in as 100% Tinta de Toro that was brought up all in used French oak barrels for six months. This ripe, juicy wine has loads of blackberry fruit as well as pepper herbs, earth, and earth. It's medium-bodied, has good acidity, beautiful balance, and a great finish. This is another smoking value. (Sep 2019)"
