Fruit forward with red cherries and rhubarb yet also has a hint of vanilla on the nose. Once in the mouth it becomes lusher with creamy vanilla and some more subdued notes of caramel and strawberry. The finish is agreeably soft and slightly fruity.

Wine maker notes
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. Brain child of young female winemaker Meritxell Palleja, this wine retains all of the characteristic minerality of Priorat, while better preserving the complex fruit flavors of old-vine Garnacha and Carinena. 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.
