Why We Love This Wine

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 vintage, from a decidedly warm & dry 2015, is fermented in oak for 12 months resulting in a powerful wine retaining a considerable amount of fruit freshness. Its' tannic quality is fine grained displaying a good balance between power & elegance.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The Pintia 2015 offers interesting fruit & spicy aromas. This is a very concentrated vintage with an abundance of tension & persistence on the palate. This is a powerful & precise wine that will drink well through 2030.
