Vega Sicilia : Pintia 2017

Elegant, fine and aromatic, an alluring Vega Sicilia wine from Toro

The estate

Since its acquisition by the Álvares family in 1982, Vega Sicilia has continued to grow and establish its international reputation.Today, a constant search for excellence, a symbiotic harmony with nature, rigour and dedication make this Spanish estate a prestigious reference. Over the years, other wineries like Pintia have embraced and enhanced the philosophy of Vega Sicilia. Thus, the extreme care provided both in the vineyards and throughout the winemaking process leads to the production of fine Spanish wines from the most unique lands.

The wine

The Pintia winery joined the Vega Sicilia estate in 1997, subsequent to a long process of replanting the vineyard and modernising the infrastructure.

Vega Sicilia's Pintia 2017 explores the terroirs of the Toro, a region with a rich and great winemaking tradition near the Douro River. The vineyard is divided into several plots that spread over 96 hectares. Situated at 700 meters of altitude, the vines rest on soils composed of clay, quartz and pebbles.

The continental climate is extreme, with hot and arid summers followed by very cold winters. These weather conditions favour the production of exceptionally healthly, great quality and flavoursome grapes.

The vines are around 33 years old and are sustainably cultivated with the utmost care.

The blend

Pintia 2017 by Vega Sicilia is a 100% Tinto de Toro, a local Tempranillo variety.

The nose is complex, blending notes of ripe macerated fruit and delicious spices. When aerated, the rich aromatic palette is followed by subtle notes of fine wood from the ageing process.

Food and wine pairing

Pintia 2017 is ideal with a stew, simmered vegetables or veal sirloin.
