Pintia Toro


100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo), aged one year in barrel and two in bottle before release.  

The 2015 vintage was hot and dry, even by Toro standards, yet the wine retains its poise; flavors run the gamut from cool bluyeberry to earthy, even slightly smoky notes. The tannin, while ever-present, is fine-grained and polished. Charged with excitement yet free of aggression, this is a comsummately balanced Pintia, and as such will enjoy a particularly broad drinking window, starting from now.

Also available in 1.5L, 3L & 6L

"The only wine produced here is the 2015 Pintia, which, in the warm and dry 2015, reaches 15% alcohol and has moderate acidity and a creamy, soft texture, with plenty of concentration, ripeness and tannins. It fermented in oak vats and matured in oak barrels (new and used, French and American) for 12 months. It was a powerful vintage, and they did part of the malolactic fermentation in oak vats instead of 100% in barrique to keep some of the freshness, and they also have 15,000 liters of wine that can mature in stainless steel and rotate some lots in vat before they are put in barrique. All this goes in the direction of keeping the freshness of the wine in a zone where power comes naturally, and all the tools are welcomed, including the use of different toast in the barrels. All this seems to have paid off, and even if the wine is powerful and tannic, it has good balance and the tannins are fine-grained. This has reached a good balance between power and elegance. 203,857 bottles, 6,496 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in May 2017"
