Akin to a bright red ruby in its color and rarity, Nita is a unique gem from the Spanish appellation of Priorat. From a region typically known for its concentrated barrel-aged reds, this wine is one of only a few jovenes, or non-barrel aged wines, produced within this celebrated appellation. Unaffected by the excessive toasted notes that barrel aging can produce, the 2011 Nita is perfect for those who want to taste the fruit and terroir of a wine in its purest form. Brain child of young female winemaker Meritxell Pallejà, this wine retains all of the characteristic minerality of Priorat, while better preserving the complex fruit flavors of old-vine Garnacha and Cariñena. Bright red in color and clean on the palate, this wine has a juicy entry that is supported by delicate minerality and notes of ripe cherries.
Meant to drink now or age up to five years, this enjoyable wine is the perfect accompaniment to a variety of dishes including BBQ, Chinese, Italian and American cuisine.
Blend: 45% Garnacha, 35% Cariñena, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah
