’17 by Pinea’ celebrates the year 2017, a very important year in the life of our winery due to the major events that took place then, including the commercial debut of our flagship wine, PINEA.
’17’ reflects the careful attention to detail in viticulture that characterizes our winery; by aging in American and French oak barrels, the Tempranillo grapes express a sense of origin that is a worthy reflection of the Ribera del Duero.
’17 by Pinea’ is a wine of vibrant color, clean and of medium-high intensity. A full-bodied and creamy wine that shows a perfect balance between fruit and toast from oak barrels, which gives it freshness and at the same time structure and intensity.
A 100% Tempranillo red wine, elegant and with a long and persistent finish. The personality of the Ribera del Duero and the passion of its craftsmen are reflected in every sip of 17.
Appearance: The wine displays ruby tones in the core with a deep garnet-red rim.
Nose: Highly perfumed with aromas of dark forest berries and cherries; expressive cheerful
tones of ripe blackberry, with a fine thread of vanilla aromas and very mild notes of cedar playing
a supporting role in the background.
Palate: Medium body with very elegant, velvety texture and a round, deep finish. The wine fills
the mouth in a multi-sensory journey that reveals flavors as it traverses by. Acidity regulated by
a mineral base that is typical of the chalky soils where of the vineyards grow. Broad shoulders
with beautifully integrated tannins with a very long and lingering finish.

A warm year with little climatic variation resulted in very healthy fruit. The cooler days of harvesting allowed us to better control the temperature of the incoming grapes prior to fermentation. Grapes were selected and hand-picked in 14kg crates in the vineyard. Once in the winery, we carried out a second selection of grapes, keeping only the best clusters.
The lifted, complex aromatics of “17” are the result of passionate viticulture following
sustainable and organic practices. Then careful grape selection (hand-harvested) and a
non-interventionist approach to vinification allows the fruit to be the star. After patient aging for
20 months in French oak barrels, our privileged Terroir and attention to detail followed in every
step of the wine-making process, result in one of the very best expressions of the Tempranillo
"17" by Pinea captures the elusive combination of intense concentration and lifted, complex
aromatics that distinguishes the best Ribera del Duero wines. The elegant tannins of "17" by
Pinea are very fine and well integrated, characteristic of attention to detail and use of only the
finest woods. To enhance the perfumed aromatics, decant for 15-30 minutes before pouring
at cool temperature (60-65 degrees) and use a Burgundy stem.
