Why We're Buying
Pingus is the epitome of a cult wine. Domino de Pingus releases bottles in extremely limited quantities, with the average price tag eclipsing $1,000. Consistent critical praise has only bolstered demand for this tempranillo, with wine critic Robert Parker calling the first vintage "one of the greatest and most exciting wines I have ever tasted." It doesn't hurt that Pingus also returned 12.6% on investment in 2020.
Almost black-purple color. Dense black fruits aromas, fine oak and elegant dry tannins that are beautifuly integrated in the rich body. The long finish is already graceful thanks to the spot-on balance.
Smoke and espresso notes frame plum and blackberry flavors in this generous red. Firm, well-integrated tannins and gentle acidity support the broad texture, which leaves a floral, spicy finish. Drink now through 2025.
