“One of the very best wines from Toro. In 2001, first marketed by Pintia, a part of the house Vega Sicilia. Already from the first year this wine scored higher in almost all renowned wijncitici, including Robert Parker. Pintia is limited available because the only wine made of grapes from old vines. 12 months aged in French (70%) and American (30%) oak. Deep red full, complex wine. Ripe black fruit, mineral, "roasted tones", spice and a long, impressive finish. Can at least until 2024 to develop further. The 20112 Parker got 92 points and 94 points Penin. The bouquet is very Bordeaux-like with black instead of red fruit, nice minerality and hints of cedar and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with plump, round tannins, firm structure and high precision in the finish. This is what you call a "classic" Pintia but anyway this wine is also only marketed if this summit.
92/100 Parker 94/100 Peñín”

“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.”
