Characteristics of Pittacum Val de la Loba
Pittacum Val de la Loba is a red wine from DO. Bierzo produced by Bodegas Pittacum. The winery is situated in the town of Arganza (León) and was founded back in 1999.
The century old Mencía vineyards are planted on loamy soils, on slopes and high density and worked completely by hand. The harvest is carried out with small 12kg boxes.
The grapes pass through a selection table before being placed into a 20 hectolitre tank, where they ferment for 20 days at controlled temperatures, with light pump overs carried out for a light extraction. The wine is then aged for 12 months in barrels, although first year barrels rather than brand new to ensure that the wine retains a fruitier and lighter character.
Serve at 15ºC
Lightly seasoned salad, Poultry, Beans and pulses, Blue fish, Rice with meat
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".
To find the heart of Pittacum you would have to travel to the Bodega Terras Gauda in the Valle de O Rosal, in the Rías Baixes. 15 years since its foundation, personality, consistency and quality continue to be the three defining factors of the commitment of Pittacum. Pittacum, situated in El Bierzo, is home to forty hectares of old vineyards, distributed across over two hundred plots on the slopes of the mountain belts. It is these vineyards that are the source from which their wines are nurtured.
