    July 30, 2021 - thick and bold tempranillo, always intense and complex with notes of dark chocolate, leather and underbrush. Still alive and kicking but probably at the end of its best drinking window. In a fresh evening at Chiavari looking ahead

    January 19, 2021 - big and thick as Pintia is used to be. Dark rubin, notes of overripe plums and dark chocolate, at the palate still shows some tannins and a mouthfilling complexity with graphite, leather and underbrush. 2007 vintage a notch below 2004 - which was richer - but not disappointing at all.

    October 1, 2020 - 100% Tinta de Toro. Cold-soaked for up to 5 days before the fermentation in oak vats, aged in French (70%), American (25%) and Hungarian (5%) oak barrels for 12 months. Bottle #41312 of total 218178 bottles produced. 15% alcohol.

    Quite dark, almost fully opaque blackish-red color with a developed hint of maroon. The nose is brooding and somewhat restrained with dark-toned aromas of ripe plums, some licorice root, a little bit of savory oak spice, light sweet notes of wizened figs, a hint of sweet, toasty oak and a touch of earth. The alcohol shows a bit through. The wine is dry, extracted and quite weighty on the palate with a full body and concentrated flavors of toasty oak spice, some developed raisiny notes, light sweet notes of ripe plummy fruit, a little bit of old leather, a hint of dried dates and a touch of vanilla. The alcohols shows quite a bit. The overall feel is pretty muscular with the ample, grainy tannins that are ripe yet still quite noticeably grippy and moderately high acidity. The finish is long, rather tannic and even quite hot with powerful, extracted flavors of ripe blackcurrant and dark plummy fruit, some meaty umami, a little bit of dried pruney fruit, light peppery tones, a hint of old leather and a sweet touch of toasty mocha oak.

    Like I said three years ago, this wine doesn't need any further cellaring and will keep for another 5-7 years. Well, the wine doesn't seem to have improved from my last taste (April 2017) and although structurally the wine is still very unresolved and tightly-knit, it feels like it is starting to fade away in the taste department. The nose was as restrained and understated as before and the flavors are getting more muddled and clumsy with the age, not gaining the finesse and complexity I had hoped for. I really don't see this wine getting any better with further cellaring; best to drink now or within the next few years. Despite being quite a massive powerhouse of a wine, this is really nothing special to write home about.

    July 19, 2020 - Too young in my view. Still quite tannic which obscures the flavors lurking underneath. Not very generous yet. I will save my other bottle as long as possible.
