Pintia Toro 2008

Pintia Toro 750ml 2008      
Sku: 31691

After the first four grape harvests (1997-2000), we realised that we would have to preserve, extract and protect everything that would convert Pintia into an elegant wine within the austerity of the region, i.e. delicate tannins embraced by the aroma of fresh fruit whilst avoiding overripeness and liquorice aromas. This is Pintia’s defining philosophy.

The 2008 Pintia has a fragrant bouquet with scents of dark plum, mulberry and fresh cherry, the new oak neatly folded into the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with a fleshy, silky smooth entry. The tannins here are very fine with dark cherries, a touch of sloe and spices that become more pronounced toward the focused finish. This is perhaps the most feminine 2008 so far - less sexy than the 2007 but still seductive.

Other text
After so many years of study and definition of the new project, we established a series of premises to be strictly adhered to when considering the pros and cons of the region. On the one hand, this area is warmer than Ribera del Duero and, on the other, the land is basically a carpet of stones deposited by the river in the past; in short, a region which is twice as warm with the subsequent risk of making heavy wines that are difficult to enjoy. Moreover, and to make this ‘problem’ more acute, in Toro we need the ripening to be as complete as possible, even with the risk of high alcoholic proof, in order to obtain a minimum condensation of tannins.

Food pairing
When pairing with food, Pintia is a modern wine adapted to international palates. Its quality knows no bounds whilst at the same time expressing the characteristics of the Tempranillo Tinta de Toro grape to perfection. There are no limits to this wine’s pairing possibilities. Nevertheless, given its concentration and magnificent structure it is perfect with sirloin steak and other grilled meat such as suckling lamb, braised vegetables, bean stews, shank and other Spanish bean dishes. It is also the perfect partner for cold creams, rice dishes, warm cod or brain salad and crayfish or fish such as the cod dish bacalao al pil pil. However it is exceptionally well matched to roast dishes and game such as partridge with cabbage.
