Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "The only wine produced here is the 2015 Pintia, which, in the warm and dry 2015, reaches 15% alcohol and has moderate acidity and a creamy, soft texture, with plenty of concentration, ripeness and tannins. It fermented in oak vats and matured in oak barrels (new and used, French and American) for 12 months. It was a powerful vintage, and they did part of the malolactic fermentation in oak vats instead of 100% in barrique to keep some of the freshness.... (LG)" 95 points Vinous "Deep, glistening ruby. Expansive cherry, cassis, potpourri, exotic spice and cracked pepper scents on the intensely perfumed nose; subtle licorice, tobacco and vanilla qualities add complexity. Deep, sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering intense, spice- and smoke-tinged red and dark berry compote, violet pastille and cola flavors that become livelier with air. The floral quality gains strength on the strikingly long finish, which leaves smoke and mineral notes behind. (JR)"

About Bodegas Pintia

Bodegas Pintia is a winery founded by the Álvarez family, owners of Vega Sicilia, with the goal of producing a unique expression of Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in the Toro appellation. After careful study, the family chose the San Román de Hornija wasteland in Toro, where they purchased old vineyards to begin their winemaking venture. The winemaking process at Pintia is focused on preserving the fruit profile of the grape while seeking the utmost elegance in such an extreme region.

To achieve their goal, the winery conducted nearly a hundred production experiments over four years, experimenting with different vineyards, barrel types, and malolactic fermentation techniques. As a result, Pintia uses a combination of 70% French and 30% American oak barrels, where the wine remains for approximately 12 to 15 months before being bottled. The wine is then left to rest for at least 12 months before being released on the market, allowing it to blossom to its full potential.

The winery's modern and practical design also plays an essential role in achieving the maximum quality of wine. The reception area includes cold chambers to preserve the temperature of the grape after harvest, and the fermentation facility has oak tanks fitted with a cooling system. The large barrel room is easy to move through, and the bottling room is spacious and climate-controlled.

Bodegas Pintia's wines are exceptional and remarkable, a result of the winery's scrupulous attention to detail in every aspect of the winemaking process, from harvest to bottle aging. The family's commitment to attaining the utmost refinement in an extreme region like Toro is reflected in the wines, making them highly sought after for Spanish wine enthusiasts.
