Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

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.

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.
Pictures and situation 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.
