Pingus Psi 2020, crafted by the renowned Dominio de Pingus under the watchful eye of winemaker Peter Sisseck, stands as a testament to the winery’s dedication to excellence and innovation in the heart of Ribera del Duero, Spain. This vintage encapsulates the essence of Tempranillo, the region’s signature varietal, presenting a symphony of flavors, aromas, and colors that speak volumes of its Mediterranean identity and the unique terroir from which it hails.

The 2020 Psi wine mirrors the ambitious vision of Peter Sisseck, who, alongside his team and with consultation from esteemed colleagues, embarked on a journey to produce a dominio wine that not only showcases the varietal’s potential but also pays homage to the rich winemaking traditions of Ribera del Duero. With an impressive production of 350,000 bottles, Pingus Psi achieves a balance between accessibility and exclusivity, made possible by sourcing grapes from over 7,000 plots of venerable vines. The acquisition of some of these vineyards in 2022 underscores the commitment to sustainability and quality, aiming to own a significant portion to maintain this volume.

In 2020, a year marked by warmth yet blessed with limestone-rich soils, Pingus Psi 2020 retained an exceptional freshness. The pingus wine unveils a captivating palette of colors, from deep, ruby reds to vibrant, translucent edges, hinting at its complexity and depth. The aroma is a rich tapestry of floral elegance, mingled with hints of garrigue, sage, thyme, and the unmistakable presence of black cherries, embodying the Mediterranean’s aromatic bounty. Upon tasting, Pingus Psi reveals a medium to full-bodied experience, where juicy freshness and a spicy, long finish dance on the palate. The integration of oak, with a careful élevage of 20 months in barrel with some new barrels, lends a subtle, supporting warmth to the wine’s inherently vibrant character.

Critical acclaim for Pingus Psi 2020 further solidifies its standing in the world of Spanish wines. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate awarded it 93 points, recognizing the achievement of Peter Sisseck’s vision for Psi Spanish and the wine’s embodiment of cleanliness, healthiness, and aromatic freshness. James Suckling’s 92 points highlight its juicy freshness and the seamless flow of flavors across the palate, culminating in a spicy, enduring finish. Such endorsements not only underscore the wine’s sensory delights but also its place within the broader narrative of contemporary winemaking in Spain.

Dominio de Pingus Psi, and by extension, Psi 2020 wine, represent more than just a product of viticultural expertise; they are a reflection of a broader ethos. The Dominio winery’s dedication to improving viticultural practices, shunning chemicals, and embracing biodynamics is a “give back” to the region, capturing the “soul” of Ribera. At 14.00% ABV, this vintage not only speaks to the aficionados seeking depth and complexity but also to those new to the world of wine, offering an accessible entry point into the nuanced realm of Spanish wines.

In summary, Pingus Psi 2020 stands as a beacon of Ribera del Duero’s winemaking prowess. Under the guidance of Peter Sisseck, Dominio de Pingus has crafted a wine that transcends the ordinary, offering a taste of the Mediterranean’s heart and the limestone-laden soils of Spain. From its elegant aromas and robust flavor profile to its critical acclaim, Pingus Psi 2020 is a testament to the art of winemaking, inviting wine enthusiasts and newcomers alike to explore the rich tapestry of flavors that Ribera del Duero has to offer.

Critical Acclaim

WA 93
Wine Advocate
In 2020, he reached the target he set for himself when PSI first started, to produce around 300,000 bottles (it's actually 350,000 bottles). The volume of the 2020 PSI is something that's important, as it has availability and affordability, which is necessary when based on quality, purchasing only grapes from old vines (they use 7,000 plots for this volume!). So, they also started purchasing some of those vineyards in 2022 (they think they need 200 hectares to keep the volume, so the aim is to own maybe half of it). Peter Sisseck remarked that we have to remember 2020 was a warm year, but with the high content of limestone in the soils, the wine has kept very good freshness. The bottled wine has all that the sample promised—clean and healthy aromas, floral and elegant, aromatic and with good freshness.

James Suckling
The Mediterranean identity immediately comes to the fore with garrigues, sage, thyme and black cherries. Juicy and fresh on the palate with excellent fluidity to the middle with a medium to full body and a long, spicy finish.
