Dominio de Pingus winemaker Peter Sisseck helped to establish a network of growers with interesting terroirs in Ribera del Duero and, of course, old vines. Together they created a new company under the name of Bodegas y Viñedos Alnardo, a vehicle for Psi, the first vintage being 2007. Deep plum-velvet, with a tight, bright rim, this exudes fresh primary fruit on the nose, as vibrant as unfermented must with red fruits, cranberry and plum all vying for dominance – pretty and lifted. The palate continues this refrain with well-concentrated, generous fruit, floral notes and hints of both citrus and spice, all underscored by hot stone minerals and ripe tannins. This combines accessibility and generosity with defined grip throughout, on to a persistent finish – rather impressive.
