Loyalty to terroir, a long-lived investment

Sublime conditions, celebrated vinification

The consistent weather throughout the growing season of 2008 played a key role in shaping what would later be one of the standout wines from Ribera del Duero. A benevolent blend of sunny days and cooler nights facilitated an unhurried ripening process and ensured that each grape was nurtured to optimum maturity before harvest.

The 2008 Pingus offers an intricate labyrinth of lavish dark fruit bouquet underscored by incense and spices. Well-muscled yet gracious on the palate, there's an almost symphonic orchestration between tannins, acidity and alcohol which undulates toward a finish that is emphatically and unapologetically enduring.

In the vast repertoire of the Ribera del Duero, the 2008 Pingus boldly stands apart as an unforgettable performance from a masterful producer. This embodiment of potent elegance is poised to provide immeasurable pleasure to its fortunate custodians. It is a masterstroke in winemaking, representing everything that makes Ribera del Duero one of the world's most sought-after wine regions.
