Flor de Pingus Magnum 2017
Dominio de Pingus in the Ribera del Duero was founded in 1995 by Danish winemaker, Peter Sisseck. Though considered a second wine, Flor de Pingus is a wonderful wine in its own right, made from old vine Tempranillo raised in a combination of stainless steel and oak barrels. The 2017 vintage saw significantly lower yields but superbly concentrated fruit with pronounced tannins. This is a ripe, but muscular, release with deeply intense notes of cassis, black cherry, wild herbs, cinnamon, clove and subtle toasty oak.
