Description

With grapes coming from hundred-year-old vines, Pittacum Mencía has lovely natural acidity and soft tannins. It was a great vintage in Bierzo, producing wines of balance. The colour is intense with an elegant nose of bright, fresh red fruit, spices, and liquorice. Fluid and juicy on the palate with a long, refreshing finish.
Viñedos y Bodegas Pitticum is located in the town of Arganza, part of the naturally beautiful and picturesque region of Berciana and is covered under the DO of Bierzo. Pitticum was created in 1999 with the aim of producing wines with personality to showcase the local variety, Mencía, that this region is famous for. The mild climate here is regulated by humidity from the coast. Old vines are planted on 5-hectares of mineral-rich terroir. Grapes are sorted cluster by cluster in order to select only the healthiest and ripest bunches. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks whilst punching down and pumping over is carried out manually, for selective extraction of tannins.
Food matches: Pair with grilled meats, hearty stews, cheese, or pasta dishes.
