HOT NEW RELEASE: Vega's Pintia 2010 - 95 pts

 

The absolute gem that is Pintia is made by the guys from Spain’s greatest Estate - Vega Sicilia – with their intention being to produce superb wine at a more friendly price level; in 2010, there is no doubt that they’ve excelled themselves.

The flagship wines ‘Unico’ and ‘Reserva Especial’ are released at around £2000 a case; at a fraction of this price, the Pintia is extraordinarily close to these bigger brothers’ coat tails in quality terms, offering value for money that is virtually impossible to find anywhere else. In addition, with a superb vintage like 2010, where the old vine Tempranillo was harvested to perfection, there’s no doubt that Vega’s huge wealth of knowledge in making stunning, long-lived wines with superb concentration and depth – not to mention beautiful balance and real refinement – has paid off in spades. The result is a gorgeous, silky, seductive, and unashamedly enjoyable red which has all of the hallmarks to suggest it will get even better over at least a decade.

Pound for pound, this release is Spain at its very best… 

 

95 pts NM, eRobertParker.com“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.
