Pittacum Garnacha Tintorera La Prohibicion 2009

Sku: P44170

La Prohibicion wine comes from centuries-old Garnacha tintorera vines planted on steep hills whose soil’s vocation is to grow good wine. Because the grapevines are shaped in the traditional bush system and densely planted, manual intervention is constantly required, fostering a respect for the land and the soil that has become for us second nature. These vineyards are not cultivated or polluted with herbicides.We let the native flora colonize the vineyards as volunteers and regulate it bymanual scything. Finally, we look for that magic moment, the “sazon”, or the perfect instant of ripeness that will express the attributes of the vintage and the telluric secrets of the land.

Wine maker notes
La Prohibicion is a wine with its own personality, where the Garnacha Tintorera grape is expressed with a marked Atlantic character that awakens strong sensations. Its high acidity, the backbone of this wine, will allow us to enjoy it through the years without a trace of evolution, keeping its fruitiness and freshness intact. Optimum consumption temperature: between 14 ºC and 16 ºC.

Food pairing
Its characteristic acidity can be a stalwart companion when matched with traditionally heavy and fatty meals like stews or casseroles. Its tannins are a good match for proteins, particularly unadorned red meats and fatty blue fish dishes like tuna stewed in onions with green bell peppers and unpasteurized aged sheep cheese or blue cheeses.
