This year, which was described as a very good one, started with high temperatures that did not lower until the end of November. There were also quite low water reserves. In the early spring, temperatures began to rise, leading to the first bleedings of the vines. The beginning of the growth cycle did not present any major upheavals, except for the low humidity due to the lack of rain during the winter. During May, the vines began to develop their buds, causing the flowering during the first week of June. When they started to ripen, the drought and the stress on the vines was evident. At the end of August, there a certain amount of rain helped to hydrate the bunches, which helped to collect the healthiest grapes.As a result, we have a year with wines of a concentrated profile and some acidity. Perfect in their youth and with a medium ageing capacity.
Pintia is a red wine with an intense colour. It has a broad, expressive and elegant nose that reveals powerful fruit alongside nuances of a subtle and high quality wood. On the palate it is structured, with a good tannins, a gentle, fresh and persistent mid-palate and a floral retronasal finish.
The 2013 vintage, rated as a very good one, began in a complicated way. In the early spring, in April and May, temperatures were low and there were heavy rains, significantly delaying the start of the growth cycle. This resulted in late flowering and therefore later ripening. Before the harvest, there was a considerable amount of rain, which produced an interspersed harvest.After a cold and rainy year, the profile of the wines they have produced are less concentrated than usual. Fresher and with a good acidity.
Cherry colour with a purple trim. Nose
On the nose the wine is complex and powerful. Blueberries, strawberries and blackberries. With a presence of barrel notes. Taste
Pintia has a very elegant passage on the palate. Ripe red fruit, compote, blueberry and blackberry. A very persistent finish.
Dark cherry colour with violet nuances. Very bright, with dense quite coloured slow-falling tears. Nose
A high intensity wine with fleshy notes of ripe black fruit released moderately. Its spicy notes, its subtle and elegant toasted and roasted aromas and its refreshing balsamic hints round out this balanced and highly harmonious nose. Taste
In the palate we find a red wine with a powerful attack and a mid palate full of abundant notes of fruit and with more toasted aromas than in the nose. It is very well structured. A medium-bodied wine with a good, very integrated acidity and fine and ripe tannins. Long and very persistent finish with notes of fruit and spices at retro-olfaction.
