Heiner Lobenberg über:
Pintia (Toro) Tempranillo 2017


Lobenberg: Pintia ist Vega Sicilias Projekt aus dem Toro. Hier stecken 100% Tempranillo in der Flasche. Das Weingut expandierte in den 90er Jahren entlang des Duero und gründete Alion und Pintia. Das hier ist ein kleines Kraftpaket mit reifer Frucht, dunkler Beere und enormer Würzigkeit. Das Tannin bildet ein Korsett, die amerikanische Eiche unterstreicht die Langlebigkeit dieser Füllung. Ein großartiger Wein mit Praline, Brombeerkonfit und cremiger Extraktsüße. Viel Bums und Druck in charmanter, beeriger Verpackung. 95+/100


Suckling über: Pintia (Toro) Tempranillo

-- Suckling: 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. Drink or hold. 96/100


Parker über: Pintia (Toro) Tempranillo

-- Parker: Toro (almost) didn't suffer the frost of 2017 that decimated Ribera del Duero, and in that early harvest, the grapes for the 2017 Pintia were picked between September 6th and 17th trying to keep the freshness and acidity. They also did a softer extraction, reduced the percentage of wine that went through malolactic in barrel and used less American oak for the élevage, trying to achieve a more elegant wine. Still the wine is ripe, juicy, round and powerful at 15% alcohol, with a mellow palate with a pH of 3.9 and 4.5 grams of acidity. The wine matured in new and used oak barrels for 12 months. It feels quite fresh and harmonious, not showing any heat, not as fresh and atypical as 2016. It keeps the poise and the balance and has abundant but fine tannins. These wines repay time in bottle, and even if approachable now, it should get better with time. It's like a refined version of the 2015. A triumph over the adverse conditions of the year. 204,240 bottles, 6,720 magnums and some larger formats produced. It was bottled in May 2019. 94+/100


Decanter über: Pintia (Toro) Tempranillo

-- Decanter: Vega Sicilia has 110ha in Toro; 72% of the vines on their own rootstocks (a feature of Toro’s phylloxera-resistant soils). Inky colour, with exuberant aromas of blackberries, cranberries and cedar. The palate is all about power, balanced by fine freshness. The dark fruits are overload by black pepper and cumin spices. They are easing back the oak: 35% of the malolactic is in barrel. Only 20% of the ageing is in American oak, the rest French. 94/100
