Description

Nietro is made from old vine Garnachas, averaging 40 years old, grown at 950 metres. Vineyards located in a watershed area. Soils are rocky with a high percentage of slate and pebbles. These features make it find us with a unique vineyard, able to express the true personality of the Garnacha grape.

Harvested manually during the first week of October. This harvest took place following a hot summer and a favourable autumn for maturation.

Fermentation took place at 26º C in stainless steel deposits, macerating for 14 days. Aged for 4 months in French oak barrels.

Its name, Nietro, comes from an ancient wine measuring unit equivalent to 16 large pitchers or 160 litres.
