Robert Parker Wine Advocate 95/100

Description

"The Alvarez family from Vega Sicilia bought Pintia in 1996 for its stony terroir with rich clay sub-soils at high altitude (600m ASL). Crafted from 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) from ungrafted 40-60 year old vines. Fermentation is done in new French Oak before aging for 12 months in 80% new oak (50 French and 30 American).The 2010 Pintia had already been bottled when I tasted it, although not released. The bouquet is very Bordeaux-like with black rather than red fruit, fine minerality and touches of graphite and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with plump, rounded tannins, a firm structure and great precision on the finish. This is what you might call a "classic" Pintia that already demonstrates great breeding and sophistication toward the finish. eRobertParker.com"
