Peter Sisseck was ecstatic about the quality of the 2015 Pingus. Since he no longer uses any new oak—and hasn't since 2012—the aging in used wood is extended to 23 or 24 months. This is the first vintage certified as biodynamic from Demeter. We poured the wine and took half an hour to get to it, as the wine was very closed at first and opened up very slowly in the glass. Little by little, the nose started showing a floral character, what I consider the perfume of great Ribera del Duero, the elegant part that compensates the powerful nature of the wines and gives the finesse to the best wines. The wine has been very consistent in the last few vintages, as Sisseck reckons the old but balanced vines (they started working in biodynamics in 2000) cushion the vintage differences more than other younger vineyards. These vines were planted in 1929, and they have always been farmed organically and in a traditional way. This is truly outstanding. In a way, it made me think of 2010, even if they are very different years. It was bottled in August 2017, and there are some 6,500 bottles of this gem. Even if very young, it already drinks well. Great wines tend to be drinkable throughout their life...

About this wine

Ribera del Duero

Ribera del Duero is an excellent wine region in the Castilla y León region of northern Spain. The wine region includes vineyards along the Duero River and stretches across the provinces of Burgos, Segovia, Soria and Valladolid. The most dominant grape in Ribera del Duero is Tempranillo, known locally as "Tinto Fino" or "Tinta del País." Ribera del Duero is known for producing powerful and complex red wines. The wines are often deep and dark with notes of dark fruits, spices and complex layers of flavours, making the region one of the most prestigious wine regions and its wines loved for their intensity, complexity and ability to represent the character of the Tempranillo grape on a unique and impressive way.
