Bodegas Pintia, Toro 2011

£39.99

We currently have 1 in stock.

This is a big, bold, delicious wine full of ripe dark fruit and dark chocolate. 

The wine comes from the area of Toro in Castilla Y Leon, Spain. It is made from Tempranillo, although the local clone here is called Tinta de Toro. The growing conditions here are very tough and this local clone has adapted well to the poor stony soils and harsh conditions present at 700 metres above sea level.

Jancis Robinson gives this 17/20:

100% Tinta de Toro (tempranillo), 12 months in new oak, 70% French, 30% US. Inky colour of elderberry juice. Intense, ripe but not overripe black cherry and blackcurrant. Lots of sweet oak and chcocolate on the nose. Thick, thick texture but there’s juice in the middle. Sweetly oaked and generous. Purest of fresh dark fruit, needing time for the texture to become more refined. For lovers of oak. Still seems so young and undeveloped, though the tannins are not aggressive, just thick. (Drink between 2017-2025)

Vinous gives this 93/100:

Youthful purple. Cherry liqueur, blackberry, candied licorice, vanilla and incense on the explosively perfumed nose. Coats the palate with ripe dark fruit preserve and fruitcake flavors that are energized by hints of peppery spices and a sexy floral pastille quality. Appealingly supple and concentrated, finishing with impressive power and slowly building, velvety tannins.
