Nita, a subtle red wine from the heart of Priorat

A blend of Carignan, Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, Nita is first and foremost a wine that highlights the local terroir through a blend that is typical of this area. With this wine, Meritxell Palleja wishes to pay homage to her family: Nita evokes a house called "Cal Nita" where her grandmother, an embroidery maker, lived, as evidenced by the motifs on the label. Made from young and old vines, this Priorat red wine is characterised by its delicious fruit and subtle texture.

Meritxell Palleja: a passionate producer

The daughter of a winemaker, Meritxell Palleja is one of the passionate producers who are now the next generation of the Priorat wine region. After studying oenology and gaining various experiences, Meritxell decided in 2004 to follow her own path and to bring out the full richness of a terroir with great potential and a touch of femininity. While she cultivates international grape varieties such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, she values above all indigenous grape varieties such as Carignan and Grenache.

For wine lovers who appreciate fine and elegant red wines.

In a region used to summer heat and concentrated wines, Meritxell offers a Priorat red wine that breaks the codes: fruit and freshness. The nose evokes fresh fruit and a touch of vegetal. The palate is supple, the delicate tannins evoke feminine elegance. Fresh finish with a crunchy fruitiness. A wine to be tasted absolutely, ideal with cold meats and marinated peppers.
