Characteristics of Petit Pittacum

Petit Pittacum is a red wine made by the Pittacum winery in Bierzo.

Petit Pittacum is a varietal Mencia, an indigenous variety of Bierzo, a region west of the province of León in the autonomous community of Castilla y León.

The grapes come from ancient vines grown on steep slopes of clay, part of the mountainous area which makes up Bierzo. This mountain resort is oriented east and north, giving Petit Pittacum a marked Atlantic character.

For the preparation of Petit Pittacum, the harvest is done manually and the grapes are moved to the cellar in boxes of 12 Kg. Once there, grapes undergo manual selection on a table.

After pressing, the grapes are introduced into tanks where they are fermented for 15 days at 25 ° C. During the fermentation, the grape is shaken with the intention of preserving all the fruit and making a selective extraction.

Finally, Petit Pittacum ages for 3 months in Spanish barrels.

Alcohol: 13.5%
Serve at 15ºC

Tasting notes Petit Pittacum

A vintage where the Atlantic climate has ruled over the continental.  The lightness of this type of climate, together with the perfect sanitary condition of the vineyard, has given rise to an excellent vintage from this area.  The year began with typical temperate and rainy winter weather.  What differentiated the year was the intense rains that fell between the months of April and May, conditioning the vegetative development of the vine.    The summer was then noticeable for being warm and dry, the perfect combination for the perfect grape.  
Sight Intense cherry red. Nose Elegant and very expressive nose. Red fruits, cherries, blackberries. Taste Very cool and smooth and brisk. Juicy, with lots of fruit.
Sight Intense cherry. Nose Elegant and very expressive on the nose. Red fruit, cherry and blackberry. Taste Very fresh, mellow and light on the palate. Juicy with lots of fruit.

D.O. 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".

The origins of Pittacum can be found in the Valley of O Rosal, Rías Baixas, in Bodega Terras Gauda. Today, with 15 years of experience, personality, regularity and quality remain the three key premises that define Pittacum's commitment to their project in El Bierzo. Here, the forty hectares of old vineyards, distributed in two hundred plots on the skirts of the mountain range, are the ones that nourish their wines.
