Rarely grown elsewhere, Mencia delivers wines of great complexity but at a lower alcohol level. 'Petit Pittacum' is made from the Mencia grape from small plots of organically grown 90 year old vines situated in the foothills of the mountain range that makes up the Bierzo region. The vines are grown in clay soils on steep slopes and benefit from the cooler Atlantic climate. Following a short 15-day fermentation the wine is aged in oak barrels for 3 months. Medium bodied red wine.

Tasting: Lots of big red fruits, intense cherry red, juicy yet fresh & expressive. Intense in colour, expressive on the nose, red fruit, mineral. Fluid on the palate, soft tannins, juicy and fresh. Try it with a chorizo and bean stew.
