Pintia, Toro DO, Bodegas y Vinedos Pintia 75cl
Pintia on 2001. aastal loodud veinimõis, mis asub Toro piirkonnas. 2018 on Pintia üks parimaid aastakäike üldse, mida iseloomustab eelkõige värskus ja mineraalsus. 100% Tinta de Toro, mis laagerdus tavapärasest lühemat aega ehk 10 kuud Prantsuse ja Ameerika tammevaatides (81% uus tamm) ning enne müügile tulekut 36 kuud pudelis. Vein on joomisküps praegu, aga vananemispotentsiaali on veinimeistri sõnul 15 aastat.

“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.” James Suckling 96 points
“The 2018 Pintia comes from a cooler and wetter vintage when the grapes were picked between September 20th and October 7th, and it fermented in their new fermentation room where they feel they can be more precise. The wine still has 15% alcohol, with a pH of 3.82 and 4.6 grams of acidity. It had a shorter élevage this year and matured for 10 months in French and 18% American oak barrels, 81% of them new. The nose is very expressive, with bright cherry fruit, and the wine is fresher than the norm in the region, with integrated alcohol and oak, reflecting a very cool year, floral and perfumed. The palate is medium-bodied and reveals very fine and elegant tannins. This has to be one of the finest vintages of Pintia. Drink 2023-2029.” Wine Advocate 95+ points
