Details

This is the new vintage of Petit Pittacum, a fresh, Atlantic Spanish red wine by bodegas Pittacum made from Mencía grapevines planted in clayey soils.

The vineyards belong to the DO Bierzo. Manually harvested and selected, the grapes were destemmed and fermented uncrushed in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, with frequent punch-downs and pump-overs.

Finally, this red wine from El Bierzo was aged in oak barrels for a brief period of 3 months.

Drink Petit Pittacum 2017 until 2021.

Additional Information

Appearance

The wine Petit Pittacum has a very bright, clean, medium cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

This young red wine displays primary aromas coming from the fruit, such as raspberries, cranberries and wild strawberries, along with some herbal remembrances and hints of laurel, liquorice and balsam. A varietal Mencía from El Bierzo.

Palate

Light, juicy and fresh, this young red wine by Bodegas y Viñedos Pittacum has an outstanding acidity, with a delicately bitter core and remembrances of violets, red berries and wet earth. Medium finish with some fruity and mineral remembrances.

Our personal opinion

A modern wine in the best sense of the term, Petit Pittacum 2017 is juicy, honest and delicately oaked.
