Priorat, Familia Nin-Ortiz, Planetes de Nin 2014 - Organic and Biodynamic

£31.99

We currently have 15 in stock.

Planetes is from a small parcel of vines near the Nit de Nin vineyard. These Garnacha and Carignan vines are also bio-dynamically farmed on licorella soil. They have an average age of 80 years. The wine is finished in 65% new and 35% old oak.

This wine demonstrates all of the finesse and beauty of its big brother Nit de Nin, just all turned down a notch or two.

In the glass it is a deep purple colour. It looks lustrous and has a great sheen. 

There is a wonderful complexity of fruit here, from strawberries to raspberries and red currants, and a delicious savoury character - nutmeg, flinty mineral, balsamic, fresh herbs. These is also a hint of bitter chocolate and coffee. The tannins are present but quite ripe and the acidity means this is never murky or muddy. It is big, bold and to be honest you'll want a few of these in the wine rack!

It is utterly delicious. 

This would go very well with a rich, dark pasta dish, grilled meats or a good plate of charcuterie - especially wild boar.

Vinous gives this 92/100:

Brilliant ruby. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas are complemented by hints of candied flowers and smoky minerals. The juicy, focused and pure palate reveals intense red fruit preserves and spicecake flavors, with a deepening bitter chocolate note. Palate-staining, but lithe and graceful, with no excess weight. Fine-grained tannins give shape and late grip to the sweet, floral and very long finish.
