Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2022 Buena Pinta has changed; in this vintage, it's pure Moravia Agria, an obscure Manchuela red grape with very good freshness, from a sandy granite vineyard, and it had a longer élevage in the 5,000-liter oak foudre until August, close to 11 months, to give it better balance. It was closed and austere and could remind you of a red from Galicia or a Cabernet Franc from the Loire. It has 12.5% alcohol and a round mouthfeel with hints of coal and graphite and spicy balsamic notes of bay leaf. It has a little more tannin and it's not compensated by the Garnacha like in previous years, so it's going to need some more time in bottle. 7,000 bottles were filled in August 2023.

Features

Description

Buena Pinta, an intriguing and distinctive wine, comes from the Manchuela region. This wine is a pure expression of the Moravia Agria variety, an almost forgotten grape, indigenous to the region, which stands out for its excellent acidity, especially valuable in warm climates and hot vintages. Production of Buena Pinta is limited, with only 6,000 bottles.

Winemaking

The elaboration of Buena Pinta is a careful and environmentally friendly process. Viticulture is carried out biodynamically, without soil enrichment or irrigation. The plant cover is maintained and the soil is rarely ploughed, thus preserving its structure. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermentation is carried out with indigenous yeasts in 4,500 litre French oak vats. The wine matures for seven months in these same vats before bottling without filtering or fining. This approach highlights the purity and authentic expression of the terroir.

Taste

Buena Pinta is a light, elegant red with a remarkable structure. On the nose, it presents aromas of sour cherry and dried thyme, while on the palate, the cherry comes through again, accompanied by earthy notes and a touch of chalky minerality. The well-integrated acidity and freshness are surprising, giving it an almost Atlantic character. This wine, with an alcoholic strength of 12.5%, offers a velvety texture, marked tannins and a rather Atlantic acidity, making it incredibly fresh and drinkable.
