Pittacum Aurea reflects the Mencía's fragrance, sweetness and minerality, and captures the wisdom of a century-old vineyard, the Finca Areixola, located at Fuente de Miel. Of course, with a name like 'honey spring' we couldn't expect anything else! It's also a wine for cellaring, and profound, which can be enjoyed right from when young. Elegant, Atlantic, fresh and with very ripe red fruit, Morello cherries and redcurrants. Its sweetness (sweet spices) is seductive on the nose and it performs most pleasantly on the palate. Juicy, meaty and with a refreshing minerality. Aurea receives the finest care and attention the winery can provide: in the vineyard, where cultivation requires tasks to be carried out solely by hand due to the height and inclination of the slope lying at 700 metres, as well as the traditional high density planting; in the cellar, where the wine silently matures in new French oak barrels; in its elegant Burgundy bottle, with a stark and compelling design. Bodegas Pittacum now boasts considerable experience and its expertise is very noticeable. It started out in 1999 with the aim of creating wines with personality, totally committed to its environment, the Mencía variety and the Bierzo countryside, and today possesses 5 hectares of its own vineyards, with vines ranging in age between 50 and 80 years old, located among the municipal districts of Arganza, Valtuille, Villafranca and Ponferrada. Since 2002, it has belonged to the Bodegas Gauda group, which also includes Bodega Quinta Sardonia. Pittacum Aurea: a forthright and profound wine with an acidity that promises longevity.
