2014 Vega Sicilia Pintia Toro

2014 Vega Sicilia Pintia Toro

€79.95
Grapes Tempranillo. Region: Toro, Castilla y Leon, Spain. Producer Many consider Vega Sicilia to be one of Spain’s ‘First Growths;’ and responsible for the illustrious reputation of the Ribera Del Duero. It was founded in 1864 by Don Eloy Lecanda y Chaves, who arrived from Bordeaux with cuttings of local grapes (Cab. Sauvignon, Merlot and Malbec) and planted them, together with Spain's signature grape Tinto Fino (Tempranillo) in Ribera del Duero. Tasting Notes It has aromas of violets and delicate cedar, with a fresh, balanced, rounded palate displaying rich, dense notes of redcurrant and damson that run smoothly over the tongue. There's an edge of acidity and a finishing boom of warmth. A subtle change in the oak regime sees this in 90% new oak (rather than the traditional 100%), and 80% French and 20% American oak (a shift towards more French oak). Ageing potential 2019 - 2029 Scores and Awards 95 - 100 Decanter
