Pintia, el vino de Toro de la familia Álvarez (propietarios de Bodegas Vega Sicilia) es un vino elegante dentro de la austeridad que confiere la región. Esta nueva añada viene precedida por las buenas puntuaciones que, además de los críticos, dieron nuestros socios de Bodeboca a Pintia 2010, que está valorado con un 4.5/5 en nuestra comunidad. Resulta ideal para acompañar en la mesa con platos de carne roja y de caza. Un vino para el que sugerimos una previa decantación.

Opinión de los críticos
Vintages are therefore selling a little faster now and I tasted the 2011 Pintia, which is produced with the local strain of Tempranillo called Tinta de Toro from, head-pruned, mostly ungrafted, old vineyards (40 to 60 years of age) that were harvested quite early and quickly (50 tons of grapes per day!), September 13-18, to preserve the freshness in a very warm, ripe vintage. The wine matured for one year in mostly French oak barrels and is dark and ripe, but surprisingly fresh for a very warm vintage. The early harvesting has paid back and has provided for a wine that shows the character of the place, with that slight rusticity – especially if compared with Alion – true to its birthplace and the vintage, with notes of tree bark and damsons, spicy oak and a faint reductive character when uncorked. It would benefit from decanting in advance, and notes of beef blood emerge with time in the glass. The palate is medium to full-bodied with juicy tannins and a supple texture that fills your mouth, ending with a pleasant bitter note. This is a generous, big, ripe wine getting civilized and more elegant by the year, still a little marked by toasted oak, but developing different notes with time, becoming very meaty and showy. 190,000 bottles produced. Drink 2015-2019.
