The 2008 Pintia is 100% Tinta de Toro, the superior local clone of Tempranillo. It displays the style and class of a Vega Sicilia Group wine, but with the extra spicy, forceful presence of a Toro.The Spanish red wine is polished and charismatic with an impeccable quality.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 95
"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."
