A maroon color with a purple rim, high layer and densely colored teardrop. In the nose, aromas of fresh, living fruits predominate, reminiscent of wild cherries, aromatic herbs and flowers, together with hints of its aging in oak: cocoa, toffee and balsamic intimations. In the mouth it is fleshy, with volume. It presents balanced acidity, elegant and fresh. A harmonious wine with a long balsamic, fruity aftertaste.
The 2009 Pittacum is the bread and butter wine of the winery with 180,000 bottles per year. The Mencia 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.
