The bottled 2020 Pingus has settled, and the strong Mediterranean accent that was quite strong early on seems to have calmed down. The wine shows more of the serious Pingus character and is harmonious, balanced and elegant, perhaps because of the time it spent in oak vat (starting this year, it is not only in barrique). It feels very complete and intense but without weight or heaviness, and the fruit shows very clean and focused. Peter Sisseck compared it with the 2000, a wine that for him transcends the vintage; it showcases the balance (wines like 1996, 2000, 2012, 2016 and 2018). The quality of the tannins is stunning, which make the wine very elegant and balanced, and it has good freshness (even some red fruit!). This is exceptionally good, but somehow my heart didn't beat like with the wines he compared them with... 7,500 bottles were filled in July 2022.

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.
