Pittacum 2011, D.O. Bierzo. 6 Bottles

Pittacum 2011, red wine 100% Mencia grape From "El Bierzo". Intense red colour, elegant and with intense fruit aromas. An espectacular red wine, made for the best occasions. 

Sommelier recommendation:  Red meat, especially lamb chops or roasted rabbit, cheese and charcuterie.

Luis Gutierrez Tasting Note (The wine advocate): "The Pittacum is the bread and butter wine of the winery with 180,000 bottles per year. The Mencía grapes are fermented in stainless steel and aged for eight months in French and American oak barrels, and a further two years in bottle. By the time it hits the shelves, it should be ready to drink. The aromas of wild berries are intermixed with some white coffee and toffee. The palate brings some spicy notes, with vegetable coal, dark berries and a mineral hint."

Pairings: Pittacum’s profile allows for a rich and varied matching to dishes and foods: grilled or stewed meats, legume pottages, certain ways of prepare fish, but also cold meats, cheeses, pasta, empanadas, salads when properly dressed.
