Tinto elaborado con una Bobal procedente de una única parcela llamada Pino, una sola hectárea de suelos calcáreos. Predominan las notas balsámicas y florales en nariz, mientras que en boca es vibrante, largo y con un final sabroso. Además tiene una larga capacidad de guarda, lo que nos permitirá disfrutarlo durante los próximos diez años.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2021 Pino has an unusually low alcoholic degree, 12.5%, but the wine keeps the power, depth and energy from other vintages. This is usually a darker wine with notes of black cherries and pine needles, serious and a little earthy. In the past, it was a bit hard, but nowadays it's more elegant but keeps the depth and with a long aftertaste. This year, it was harvested very early, to avoid the rains, and it had a soft extraction that gave it a more elegant profile. Some 4,000 bottles were filled in July 2022 after aging in the same 3,500-liter oval oak foudre for 10 months, like in previous years.
A deep and austere bobal that grows on me, starting with some baked black cherries and dark strawberries on the nose delivered in a very composed and elegant way. Then it goes to grilled herbs, dried meat, hibiscus, stones and dark earth. Mediterranean yet precise. Full-bodied on the palate but really textured, with very firm and vertical tannins. Intrinsically austere and acid-driven, but beautiful and intellectual. Much more powerful and vertical than the more elegant and delineated La Estrecha. Lots of acid and tannins, but appetizing. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
