VEGA SICILIA PINTIA TORO
Pintia is located on the banks of the river Duero, about a hundred kilometres from the original Vega-Sicilia estate, and it belongs to the Toro DO, characterized by hot summers. The soils of the vineyards are both complex and poor, with their outstanding feature being the large amount of pebbles.
This region produces wines with a marked personality and structure. As part of Vega-Sicilia's determination to achieve the elegance which is a by-word of 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 they aim to fine-tune this personality by undertaking a hundred percent of the malolactic in barrels of both French oak (70%) and American oak (30%), which is always new. The wine then settles in the bottle until it is perfect for drinking.
Pintia is a wine of great colour intensity and profound layering.It has a frank, expressive nose, with intense fruity aroma mixed with a subtle woodiness. These are wines with a very noticeable structure, but which are simultaneously voluptuous and pleasing.
