Petit Pittacum D.O. Bierzo

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

The region of Bierzo, in the northwest of Spain, benefits from a unique microclimate which aids the winemaking process. Head winemaker Alfredo Marques and his team are blessed with the valuable combination of mild temperatures and vineyards at a low altitude which prevent frosts – allowing the winery to complete his harvest before many of his contemporaries.

Based in the historic town of Arganza, the Pittacum winery presides over 90-year-old vines that produce wonderfully rustic wines dominated by the Mencia grape variety. Organic fertilisers are used and eco-friendly methods are employed throughout the estate to promote the health of these ageing vines – a strategy that is clearly working as their produce improves with every harvest.

Pettit Pittacum displays an intense colour and is expressive on the nose, red fruits, violets notes. Fluid on the palate, soft tannins, persistent, juicy and fresh.

Petit is a wine that is easy to associate with a wide range of foods and dishes.

      A good selection. Perhaps could have done with a little more cheese - but it was perfect for 2 for lunch or a light meal.

      I’ve been looking to buy the Albariño wine served at Iberica for ages. Now they sell online. Delighted. Easy to order. Love the restaurant.
