Domino de Pingus is one of the greats of Ribera Del Duero. It rivals Vega Sicilia, and is a fraction of the price even for the top offering. Flor de Pingus is the second-level wine of Domino de Pingus, but that doesn't make it any less impressive. There's heaps of dark, sultry fruits on the nose, along with curry leaves, red cherries, eathiness and toasty oak. The palate is fuller-bodied and plush, with the concentrated fruit wound tightly in the middle, approachable tannins, and a long, spicy finish. This will cellar for years, but give it some air and enjoy with some game meats.
Pingus was established in 1995 by Peter Sisseck, who had already made a name for himself as winemaker at Hacienda Monasterio. He located three separate plots, each containing very old vines of Tinto Fino, and established the winery. His aim was to produce "an unmistakably Spanish, terroir-driven wine... a garage wine."
Truffle-tobacco nose with sour cherry and fruit’n’nut tree aromatics, there’s gamey beast-hide, and a purple storm raining minerals. Fine and radiant, with cool blue fruits - powder-tannined, nutty-inky-and-mineral in the mouth, this is Ribera del Duero from on high. Majestic wine.
