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.

Designation of Origin D.O. Bierzo

Winery Pittacum

Bierzo wine is on the rise. It is a region defined by its small scale work, with plots scattered around, very old vines, artisan work of the small scale wineries, and the character of their principal variety, the Mencía grape, which produces fresh, fruity and delicious wines. Although the region is well known mostly for its red wines, it also produces white and rosé wines. If the red wines here are defined by the Mencía variety, then the white wines here are defined by the Godello. Godello grape has great aromatic potential, as well as an excellent balance between alcohol and acidity.  Despite the great potential of El Bierzo, its rise in the wine world would not have been possible without two people: Raúl Pérez and Ricardo Pérez. Two great winemakers who in little time have been able to produce critically acclaimed wines from the Bierzo region.

Imágenes y situación D.O. Bierzo

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.
