Characteristics of Pintia
Pintia is one of the great wines from D.O. Toro produced by Bodegas Pintia, belonging to the famous Vega Sicilia group. Pintia is a single variety red wine made from Tinta de Toro, the reigning variety in Toro. The grapes are grown on old vineswith an average age of 40 years old and planted in pots in the town of San Román de Hornija (Valladolid).
Due to its proximity to the River Duero, the soils include a lot of pebbles and sand on the surface. The climate is a continental climate with an oceanic influence and a great difference in temperature between the very cold winters and the very hot summers that ensure an excellent ripening of the grapes.
The harvest is done manually and the grapes arrive at the winery in 8 kilo boxes that help to keep the grapes in perfect condition. Once in the winery, the grapes are placed in a cold storage for 12 hours at a temperature below 5ºC. Once they have been cooled, the grapes undergo a strict selection process before they are fermented which will take between 4-6 days. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, it is placed in new barrels where the malolactic fermentation takes place. The new French and American barrels are where the wine ages for 13 months.
Finally, Pintia is bottled and there is a thorough control of the quality of the corks. Pintia is an example of quality applied to the entire production process that, as a result, has produced an excellent wine, very elegant with very fine tannins.
