wine bottle


(Toro, Spain) $80

Pintia, a small winery in Toro on the vast high plain of Spain, is owned by Vega Sicilia, the most famous winery in Spain. As such, Pintia is showered with Vega Sicilia-level care and attention (but it costs a fraction of the price). The wine—from Spain’s great grape variety Tempranillo—is rich and uber velvety, with supple long swaths of dense red fruit. Toro wines can be blockbuster powerhouses, but Pintia holds onto its elegance even as it delivers a massive amount of flavor. The delicious 2017 is on the market now, but also watch for the 2018 (a cooler vintage) with its violety bounce of freshness. (15% abv)
