Vega Sicilia Pintia 2017 Toro
Pintia lies on the banks of the River Duero, within the DO of Toro. The
extremely cold winters and hot summers influence its complex soils, which
are characterised by a large number of pebbles. It is therefore paramount to find the optimal harvest time so as not to lose the freshness of the aromas or the acidity of the wine. Extraction and barrel influence were reduced to compensate for the natural intensity of the grapes after the hot summer and ensure elegance. Swathed in structure and tannins, there is a gentle touch of blueberry alongside the ripe raspberry on the nose, yet the core shows dark chocolate, moist tabacco and ripe spiced plums. A supple, savoury, and very generous mineral freshness comes through to leave your palate wanting more.
