2013 Vega Sicilia Pintia Toro
From the Winery
Vega Sicilia is one of the most renowned wineries in the world, and certainly one of Spain's most prestigious. They are significant contributors to the revival of great winemaking the Toro region of Spain. They own Bodegas Pintia and its superb wine, Tinto de Toro. Further along the river Duero from Vega Sicilia the estate was purchased in 1998 and the first release being the 2001 vintage.
The grape here is 100% Tinta de Toro, a thick-skinned local clone of Tempranillo. Pintia displays the style, class and elegance of a Vega Sicilia Group wine, but with the extra spicy, forceful presence of a Toro.
Pintia is located on the banks of the Duero River, within the Toro Appellation. The extreme weather conditions, very cold in the winter and intense heat in the summertime, act upon its complex soils characterized by large amount of pebbles. As part of our determination to achieve the elegance of a Vega Sicilia, it is essential to choose just the right time to harvest so as to safeguard the freshness of aromas and the wine’s acidity. During the ageing process, we aim to fine-tune its personality by undertaking malolacticfermentation in 70% French oak barrels, 25% American oak and 5% Hungarian oak, later resting in the bottle until it is perfect for drinking.
Pintia 2013 is a wine of great colour intensity and profound layers. It has a frank and expressive nose and intense fruity aroma mixed with a subtle woodiness. This vintage offers a very noticeable structure and personality. It is remarkably fresh, energetic, elegant, with a long journey ahead of it.
