Vega Sicilia Pintia 2017 75cl 14.5% ABV
Vega Sicilia Pintia, Ribera del Duero, Spain
Vega Sicilia is perhaps the most prestigious winery in Ribera de Duero. This Tempranillo is an elegant, full bodied and intense wine, with hints of black fruit, spice and cedar.
Pinitia 2016 is made from the old vine Tinta de Toro, the local variety of Tempranillo found within the region, which is aged between 40 to 60 years. The wine is matured for 12 months in new oak, approximately 70% French and 30% American oak barrels.
Beautifully concentrated, ripe baked blackcurrant and plum fruit, cedar wood notes overlaid with spice and minerality. Very distinctive, smooth and round with good concentration of dark berry fruits. Great length and good tannins.
