The Oddbins Take

A very warm wine, robust and meaty but also unexpectedly fresh. While its ""brother"" is more fruity, this ""Pintia Toro"" is more rustic and oaky. The Toro region is close to Portugal so it is a very sunny area. The sun brings the power to the wine but the Duero river is not that far so we also get some fresh acidity.


There's so much going on, whether on the nose or palate, that we don't even know where to start. This wine needs at least two hours of breathing but while you do this you should pour a glass and check its nose and the evolution that takes place during those two hours. Each time you will feel that you're smelling a different wine and you'll be thinking about a blue sky and sunflowers rather than Christmas roses.
