Vega Sicilia Pintia Toro Red Wine 2018 Spain 75cl

Bodegas Pintia is located on the banks of the Duero River, within the DO Toro in northern Spain. The winery is owned by Vega Sicilia, perhaps Spain's most famous fine wine producer. This wine is 100% Tinta del Toro (Tempranillo) aged in 70% French oak barrels, 25% American oak and 5% Hungarian oak. The extreme weather conditions, very cold in the winter and intense heat in the summertime, along with specific soils, create perfect conditions for fine wine.

This can be cellared for 10-15 years or more.


Pairs well with…

  • Cured Meat
  • Lamb
  • Red Meat
  • Venison
"The 2018 Pintia comes from a cooler and wetter vintage when the grapes were picked between September 20th and October 7th, and it fermented in their new fermentation room where they feel they can be more precise. The wine still has 15% alcohol, with a pH of 3.82 and 4.6 grams of acidity. It had a shorter élevage this year and matured for 10 months in French and 18% American oak barrels, 81% of them new. The nose is very expressive, with bright cherry fruit, and the wine is fresher than the norm in the region, with integrated alcohol and oak, reflecting a very cool year, floral and perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals very fine and elegant tannins. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Pintia." 95+ Points - Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate.

"Brooding but fresh nose, with tarry blackberries and fresh blue fruit. Iron, wet stones, violets and a hint of mocha, too. Full-bodied, mineral and broad on the palate with a stony feel, though not heavy at all. A really elegant, nuanced and extremely poised Pintia that you can enjoy now and for the next decade. A really eclectic Pintia showing more elegance and calculation." 96 Points - James Suckling
Grape: Tempranillo
A powerful red wine that displays intense aromas of black fruit, violets, cinnamon, clove, tar and coffee bean. This vintage has a bit more freshness and elegance than stereotypical Toro wine, showing the cooler character of the year as well as the expertise of the winemaking team.
A great match with slow roast Lamb and suckling pig, also try with charcuterie.
