Pharmacist turned winemaker Pepe Rodriguez de Vera comes from six generations of viticulturists. He started making wine from his family’s vineyards at home as a hobby, which soon grew into a passion. After completing his Masters of Wine, Pepe became full-time winemaker at Dominio de Casalta, the family estate, where his first vintage was 2010. Today, he continues to seek out unique vineyards for his many wine projects throughout Spain—from the Canary Islands to Rioja—which showcase a diverse range of wines crafted from indigenous grape varieties. ​Pituco is named after Pepe’s loyal dog who enthusiastically joins him on his vineyard visits.

A blend of 70% Monastrell, 15% Syrah and 15% Garnacha Tintorera from vineyards located in Montealegre del Castillo, in the DO Jumilla. Phylloxera struck the region in the late 1980s (about 100 years after the rest of Spain) forcing major replanting of the vineyards. Most were replanted with Monastrell, which accounts for 90% of the region’s production. The grapes were fermented with minimal intervention, and aged for 5 months in French oak barrels. ​

Fruity aromas of mixed berry preserves and baked earth. The palate is pleasingly dry, with flavors of cassis, dark plum and blackberry. Displays charming, toasted oak and refined tannic structure, with juicy acidity through the softly fruited finish.
