I was really looking forward to the bottled version of the 2018 Pingus after a great showing of the cask sample last year. Part of the wine matured in 20,000-liter oak casks, so it's not all barrique. This is the first time they used the vats, and based on the results, Sisseck thinks in the future Pingus will be around 50% in oak vats. The Pingus vines were planted in 1929 in two different sectors of the village of La Horra, Barroso and San Cristobal and contain some 2% other varieties. The vineyards are certified organic and biodynamic and are manicured like few vineyards in Spain. The wine is subtle and harmonious, elegant and insinuating, with all the components in very good balance. This is precise and pure; Sisseck is thorough and meticulous, and the wine shows that precision. This follows the line of the 2016, showing very well even if it was bottled only one month before I tasted it. 9,300 bottles were filled in August 2020.

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.
