The Toro project of Spanish winemaking giant Vega Sicilia. Made from the local clone of Tempranillo (Tinto de Toro) in the high meseta of northwest Spain, this wine has all the swagger of another High Plains Drifter, Clint Eastwood.
Pintia is a fabulous wine with has enormous power and richness and needs a couple of hours of decanting. It flows out of the glass revealing more secrets and a deep bed of gravelly tannins. A wine of heroic proportions, great for mid-winter nights.
Origin: Toro / Spain
Grapes: Tinto Fino (Tempranillo)
