Characteristics of Pittacum Aurea

Pittacum Aurea is a D.O. Bierzo red wine by Bodegas Pittacum.
A single varietal from Mencía produced with grapes from Finca Areixola. The estate has vines that are over 100 years old, and only allows manual intervention on the grapes. The grapes have never been touched by heavy machinery.
The harvest takes place manually, and the grapes are brought over to the winery in small 12 kg boxes, ensuring there are no undesired breakages before they reach the winery.
The grapes then pass through a sorting table in which they are selected cluster by cluster. They are then crushed without being destemmed.
Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at 28ºC. Batonages and light pump-overs are applied.
Following fermentation, the wine macerates for 20 days before devatting and is left for two more weeks in the tank before passing to new French oak barrels where it ages for 14 months without a single racking being carried out.
It later rests in the bottle for two more years before being put on the market.
Pittacum Aurea is a fantastic wine that is in sync with the terroir and weather conditions of its vineyard. It is a perfect demonstration of the winery's commitment to the environment.
Alcohol: 14.5%

Reviews

D.O. Bierzo

Winery Pittacum

In recent years, winemakers and developers have settled in the DO Bierzo with very plausible innovative ideas, investing heavily in local wineries, resulting in the production of personal and unique wines. There is no doubt that El Bierzo has become a trendy and cool D.O, aided by the spicy, delicate and velvety Mencia grape, whose character and great capacity of expression of terroir is undoubtedly the regions best asset. Even many compare it to the Pinot Noir, which together with the small scale style of production and topography of its vineyards, the traditional form of the Burgundian bottle used, and the original use of the names of towns and places in their best wines, resulted in this wine region being given the nickname of "little Spanish burgundy".
