Bodegas Pintia Toro

Wine Details





Wine Description

The 2008 Pintia has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dark plum, mulberry and fresh cherry, the new oak neatly folded into the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, silky smooth entry. The tannins here are very fine with dark cherries, a touch of sloe and spices that become more pronounced toward the focused finish.

    Leuchtendes Purpur mit rubinschwarzen Reflexen. Amarenen und Kokosschokolade in der beeindruckenden Nase, sehr komplex und verführerisch süss zugleich; Pflaumenmarmelade, reife Brombeeren und frisch gerösteter Kaffee. Druckvoller Gaumenfluss mit unverkennbarer Toro-Wärme. Samtige Tanninstruktur, perfekt eingebunden in likörartige Extraktsüsse, verschwenderisch und trotzdem viel Eleganz ausstrahlend. Dezente Caramelnoten und schwarze Frucht in allen Facetten bis ins zartcrèmig ausklingende Finale.

    (2004 Vintage) Bodegas Pintia is owned by Vega Sicilia. Pintia is located further west along the Duero River inside the warmer D.O. of Toro. The estate owns 96 hectares of land. The first vintage released was the 2001. As for the 2005 Pintia, it is 100% Tinta de Toro aged for one year in new French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers a complex perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, ripe, layered wine with intense flavors, serious complexity, and exceptional length. It has enough structure to unfold for another 4-6 years and drink well through 2025.
