2012 Pintia, Vega-Sicilia, Toro

The nose on this impressive Spanish star is pretty reticent at first, but with swirling come notes of coffee and balsamic, alongside plums and small cherries. The palate is ripe and structured with excellent acidity that bounces across the mouth. The finish is a touch saline, with real finesse: an excellent food wine, and one with real potential.

2012 Pintia, Vega-Sicilia, Toro
Vega-Sicilia

Vega Sicilia is to Spain what the First Growths are to France. Its story is well known - a Spanish winemaker trained in Bordeaux and returned to his homeland with a few vines to blend with the local Tempranillo. The flagship wine, Unico, marks the first time Bordeaux varieties were used in Ribera del Duero. They also produce a second wine, Valbuena 5°, so-called because it’s kept in the cellar for 5 years before release, and stablemates Pintia and Alion.
