Vega Sicilia Pintia 2010 Case (En Primeur Available July 2015)
Ribero del Duero
Critic: Neal Martin
Date tasted: April 2013
The 2010 Pintia had already been bottled when I tasted it, although not released. The bouquet is very Bordeaux-like with black rather than red fruit, fine minerality and touches of graphite and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with plump, rounded tannins, a firm structure and great precision on the finish. This is what you might call a “classic” Pintia that already demonstrates great breeding and sophistication toward the finish.
