Nietro crianza red wine. Calatayud

£11.30

Nietro 100 % Garnacha is a surprising wine due to its roundness and youth. This wine expresses all the qualities of the garnacha variety from this area of the Valle del Ebro as a result of its aging for 4 months in new French oak barrels. It is a fresh and fruity wine with a sweet tannin structure capable of satisfying enthusiasts of this variety, which is slowly re-gaining its former presence.

It is a bright burgundy wine with medium-depth. While featuring tobacco and wild berry aromas, its freshness and mineral qualities mix resulting in a surprising wine.
