Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Pittacum is a red wine produced in D.O. Bierzo by the Bodegas Pittacum winery.

It is a mono-varietal wine of the autochthonous Mencía variety, from old vines spread over 200 different plots with sloping soils, good drainage and a great deal of depth that help a proper ripening.

Harvesting is by hand, and the grapes are transferred to the winery in small boxes of only 12 Kg capacity, avoiding breakage in the grapes as much as possible before arriving at the cellar. Once in the cellar, the bunches pass through a selection table.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 15 days at a temperature of 25ºC.
After these 15 days a bleed is carried out and it is kept in the tanks for a month before being transferred to American and French oak barrels where it is aged for 8 months.

Once the aging is finished, Pittacum is bottled and then stands for 2 years before coming on the market.
A great, highly expressive wine of the 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.
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.
