Bodegas Pittacum was purchased several years ago by Terras Gauda who were looking to find a red wine with distinctive personality. The winery is located in Arganza, a town of longstanding vine-growing and wine-making heritage, nestled in the beautifully hilly landscape of the Bierzo region.
100 year old vine grown on steep slopes of clay that compose the mountainous belt of the vineyard .Bierzo.
Wild yeasts are used with non interventionist wine making. Aged for 3 months in barrels.
A bright cherry-red in the glass. A nose of blackberries, strawberries and glace cherries. On the palate, fresh and juicy with an excellent acidity and expressive red fruit flavours. The tannins are discreet and the finish lingering and bright.
Great with a warm lamb salad with pea, mint & feta cheese dressing, Botillo del Bierzo - smoked pork rib cooked with chorizo and vegetables - or braised partridge in a dark chocolate sauce.
