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.
Tasting notes
Comparing the 2006 Pintia to the 2004 and 2005, this is the one that has the most exuberance with generous cassis and black currant aromas. Initially, you suspect that it might be a touch over-ripe, but it calms down in the glass and becomes more refined. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, succulent tannins. This is very fleshy, a Pintia with more volume than its predecessors, although I am more taken with the delineation and tension demonstrated by the previous vintage.

The purple-colored 2006 Pintia offers up a complex bouquet of wood smoke, forest floor, mushroom, incense, and blackberry. On the palate it is still tightly wound but well-balanced. There is plenty of savory, spicy black fruit, moderate tannin, and good depth. It should be at its best from 2013 to 2025. It is not at the level of the 2004 and 2005 vintages but it is still a strong effort.

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.
