Tasting notes 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, ripe picota cherry colour with a purple rim. Bright, clean and high robe. Dense tears stain the glass. Nose Intense aromas of black and red fruit, which give way to toasted notes, cocoa, toffee, tobacco and traces of minerals, graphite and humid soil. Minty and balsamic undertones. Taste This red wine is strong and convincing in the mouth with bulky attack and warming and very tasty on the palate. Covers the palate with with sensations of fruity jam and toasted touches. Excellent acidity which brings freshness. Noticeable, direct tannins, somewhat rough. Very long finish leaving toasted and spicy notes at retro-olfaction.
Sight Intense, ripe picota cherry colour with a purple rim. Bright, clean and high-robe. Dense tears stain the glass. Nose Intense aromas of red and black fruit which give way to toasted notes, lots of cocoa, toffee, tobacco and traces of minerals, graphite and wet soil. Menthol and balsamic notes appear in the background. Taste This is a strong and forceful red wine. Bulky attack and walk and tasty in the mouth. Covers the palate in jammy, fruity notes accompanied by toasted touches. Excellent acidity bringing freshness. Noticeable, direct and somewhat rough tannins. Very long finish, leaving spicy, toasted notes at retro-olfaction.
Sight Intense and dark cherry colour with purple edges. Bright and with a high robe. Dense tears that stain the glass. Nose Intense varietal aromas with lots of suggestive red and black fruit that becomes increasingly expressive and explodes once it opens up. It is nuanced by the intense roasted notes, the notes of cocoa, toffee, tobacco and the mineral hints of damp earth. It has a very good balsamic background, full of menthol, eucalyptus and liquorice. Taste A tasty, dry, astringent and fleshy Bierzo wine with a delicate attack and a soft, silky and delicious mid palate. Its notes of liquorised fruit are nuanced by nicely integrated roasted aromas and wooden notes. Excellent acidity and slightly astringent tannins. Its very long finish leaves a smoky aftertaste.

    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.
