Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Pittacum La Prohibición is a D.O. Bierzo red wine by Bodegas Pittacum.
A single varietal Garnacha Tintorera. The grapes come from centenary vines that are farmed at a high density in steep hillsides requiring manual labour. No herbicides are used in their production, demonstrating this winery's total commitment to the environment.
The harvest takes place manually at peak ripeness and the grapes are transported to the winery in small 12 kg boxes to avoid breaking the clusters.
The grapes later pass through a cluster-by-cluster selection process and are crushed without being destemmed.
Fermentation takes place in small tanks for 12 days at 24-25ºC and batonages as well as light pump overs are applied. After fermentation, Pittacum La Prohibición macerates for 15 days before it is devatted and stored in 600 litre French oak barrels where it ages for 24 months. Not a single racking is applied until the wine is filtered and bottled.
Pittacum La Prohibición is a highly acidic red wine, allowing you to enjoy its fruitiness and freshness for years to come.

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.
