    PSI Ribera del Duero - TInto Fino



    The entry-level 2016 PSI was also tasted before it was bottled the last time I covered the Duero zone, so I had it again, this time in bottle and next to the also-bottled 2017 and a sample of the 2018. This really reminded me of the style of the old-time Ribera del Duero, classical, with some aromas of orange peel, wild herbs and berries. They used grapes from 22 villages from Ribera to showcase the style of this zone—wines with character, nicely integrated oak (they use old vines with some 10% to 12% Garnacha, and the wine matures in oak vats rather than barrique) and a gentle texture with the tannic structure of the zone. This is delicious and really represents the naked character of the place without oak. 300,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2018. 93/100 Luis Gutiérrez

    I had a calm and slow tasting of three vintages of the three wines produced by Peter Sisseck, giving the wines time in the glass to open up and express themselves. 2016, 2017 and 2018 are very different vintages. 2016 saw a good crop with lots of freshness, and the wines have great precision and elegance. 2017 was a dry and warm year marked by frost that made them lose between 25% and 40% of their grapes (they could buy other grapes to compensate the volume of PSI). And 2018 was a year with good rains in the winter, a classical year with high yields (the effect of the frost) and a warm summer that resulted in a very good year.
