Pintia Toro 2004

Pintia Toro 750ML 2004     
Sku: 091351

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.

 Wine Advocate 95 points (Feb 2007)
The 2004 Pintia comes from a superior vintage. Similarly styled to its older sibling, it is simply more flamboyant and opulent. The temptation is to drink this heady effort now but those who can delay gratification for a few years will be amply rewarded.

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.
