Pittacum Mencia Barrica 2008

Pittacum Mencia Barrica 750ml 2008      
Sku: 1861011*

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.

I favored slightly the 2008 Pittacum over the 2009 vintage, as I found it fresher and one step above, more mineral. One year in bottle makes a big difference, and the oak effect is much more integrated in the wine, which is juicy and supple, showing good minerality. It represents very good value. Drink 2013-2018.”,,,
