Pintia, Bodegas Vega Sicilia, Toro
Vega Sicilia is a winery that really needs no introduction. It is lauded as one of the greatest wines in Spain, and typically on collectors' top ten lists of greatest wine experiences that they have ever had. A few decades ago they expanded with the winery Alion, in Ribera del Duero. An entirely new estate, as Vega Sicilia doesn't believe in second wines. These masters of Tempranillo then went further down the Duero river into the little-known appellation of Toro. What was known though was that the Tinto del Toro, tempranillo, was powerful and mighty in this region. They not only put the region on the map, but they also grabbed the Toro by the horns. Pintia is now heralded as all the other wines from Vega Sicilia - Stunning!
