Bodegas Vega Sicilia is a famed Spanish producer in a land nourished by the Ribera del Duero. The arrival of Vega Sicilia in Toro resulted in the establishment of Pintia. The wine is 100% Tinta de Toro (the colloquial referent of the Tempranillo grape.) The region is likewise dissected by the Duero River but the climate is hotter than Ribera resulting in faster ripening conditions and fuller-bodied reds with higher alcohol content. In terms of style, the aim has always been to tame the powerful character typical of Toro reds and to craft a more refined version. This powerful red reveals black & blue fruit aromas with bramble, pine tobacco, & mocha notes with added leather & smoky, silky oak spice accents. On the palate, it displays spicy blackberry & cassis characters with dark & toasty hints and underlying grippy, chalky, & tight tannins that linger in the mouth. Drink this now through 2035 with Flank Steak, Grilled Lamb, & Manchego Cheese.
From iconic Spanish producer Vega Sicilia comes their creation in Toro characterized by bold black fruit aromas & woody tannins from extended aging in French & American oak. Their world class vineyards in Toro Spain boast a mountainous terrain experiencing hot, dry summers and cold harsh winters producing grapes of exceptional quality & character. This is a deep & robust red that would pair very well with full flavored red meat dishes & Manchego cheese.
