Since Viñedos y Bodegas Pittacum first opened for bussines, its mission has been clear: to create wines with personality, wich - without losing sight of the hallmark features of the Mencía variety and the local area and climate - bear a unique stamp. Personality, reliability and quality are the tree key words that define our commitment. The quality of a great wine inevitably depends on the excellence of the raw material. The productivity and age of the vines are key factors in achieving a fine product. The fact that different places have different soils, slopes, orientations and microclimates means that we can obtain grapes with characteristics that also differ widely.

Our extensive knowledge and experience of wine-making in the region ensures that at our winery only the finest grapes are used for the finest wine.Our winery is located in Arganza, a town with a longstanding vine-growing and wine-making heritage, and nestled in the extraordinarily beautiful landscape of the "Bierzo Region". An area with its own inimitable accents that make it stand apart from any other wine-producing region in the Iberian Peninsula. A modern building houses everything needed for the processing of our grapes. While the casks in which we age our wines silenty sleep in a sturdy stone farmhouse Read less

Tasting Notes:

Age has given this wine a new look for the Mencía grape, taking on a riper character, though the grape’s traditional rosemary and rosehips aromas linger on. The usual bright raspberry notes compete with very ripe black cherries and plums, and the finish exhibits an almost confectionary ripeness, though Mencía’s typical dustiness arrives at the end.
