Characteristics Pintia

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Pintia is one of the great wines of the D.O. Toro that starts life on the San Román de Hornija moors, Valladolid, an area of boulder soils formed by deposits from the Duero River. It is made by the Pintia winery, which belongs to the outstanding Tempos Vega Sicilia wine group.

Pintia is a single-variety Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) wine from plots with an average age of 40 years that are harvested manually. The harvest is transported in 12 kilo boxes and kept in a cold chamber in the winery for 12 hours to preserve the fruity intensity of the grapes.

As well as the selection that happens in the vineyard, the clusters also go through a double selection process in the winery: the first is to discard the clusters that seemed fine in the vineyard but are not, and the second purifies the berries by removing the defective ones found in good clusters. Before fermentation, cold maceration takes place in oak vats for 5 days, and malolactic fermentation also takes place in wood. 70% of the resulting wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels and the remaining 30% in American oak barrels.

The Pintia winery was set up in 2006, after the successful creation of Alión, a winery that also belongs to the Tempos Vega Sicilia group. It is a modern facility that is as elegant as it can be in an area like Toro, which is usually more rustic.

Like Alión, Pintia is a unique wine, as it is the only one made in the winery, which guarantees that it will always be the best wine produced in the natural conditions offered by this privileged terroir.

Pintia is a wine of great intensity, a faithful reflection of the character of the terroir and with the seal of elegance and distinction of the Tempos Vega Sicilia family.

In the years 1995, 1996 Vega Sicilia began thinking about a new winery and places of Spain where they could create. Castilla y Leon has a great river, the Duero, a meeting of its two existing warehouses, and Alión Vega Sicilia and ending in another great wine region, Port. Not far of Vega Sicilia 100 km, on the same river Duero is Toro. Famous wine-producing region for centuries and with great prestige in large periods of his life.

In Toro, the red wines are mainly made with the Tinta de Toro grape variety, planted on soils of fluvial origin by the influence of the Duero River and its tributaries, grown on poor, sandy and dry soils the further away you move from the river. Toro offers powerful wines, well bodied, flavourful, complex, and tannic. Although on a smaller scale, the region also produces white wines using the Verdejo and Malvasía varieties. Since the ´80’s, Toro has experienced a revival in its wines, thanks to a new generation of highly skilled winemakers and the installation of many big names in the region, such as Pintia, a winery belonging to the Vega Sicília group, or Teso la Monja, part of Sierra Cantabria.
