Pittacum Mencia Bierzo

Availability: In stock

Ruby red in color, this wine is reminiscent of plums and violets on the nose. Fresh raspberry and cherry fruit flavors with a hint of chocolate fill the mouth. Finishes with a hint of sweet vanilla and toffee.  Pair with red meat, especially lamb chops or roasted rabbit, cheese and charcuterie. Drink slightly chilled. Decanting is recommended.

More information:

The Pittacum vineyards benefit from rich soils in the valley and alluvial, chalky in the mountains, giving the Mencía grape varied flavors. The mild, temperate climate typical to this region allows for early harvesting, traditionally 30 days before Castille and the Rioja. The fruit is sourced from 50 to 80 year old vines on the Pittacum estate. The vineyard prides itself on their environmentally friendly, sustainable viticultural practices.

Harvested from old growth vines, the fruit is gently crushed and traditional fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Manual cap-plunging, pumping-over and long maceration time allows for selective extraction of tannins. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally.

The wine is aged for eight months in French and American oak.
