Ori Marani Nita 2020 - Red Wine (750mL)
(Ships within Ontario or available for pick-up at 211 Geary Ave location only)
From an organic, family-owned vineyard of 20 year-old vines planted on clay and limestone at 800m altitude in Khashmi, Kakheti. Spontaneous semi carbonic fermentation and maceration for 2 weeks, then aged in qvevri and old French oak barrels. 12.5% abv. 1500 bottles produced.
This sassy light-bodied red drinks like a wiser Beaujolais. Tough as nails Saperavi grapes thrive in the cool and breezy Georgian region of Kashmi, whose clay and limestone soils give the wine a brisk mineralogy. With its savoury, earthy notes of red beet and fresh tarragon, Nita is evocative of the first, very-earliest days of spring. Bright sappy flavours of wild strawberry, seedy raspberry and tart red cherry. The use of old oak barrels ramps up texture and gives Nita its distinctly literary complexity. Enjoy lightly chilled!
