Tinto (Nitanto) literally means “red (not so much).” It started as a joke. In 2014, Juan invited his father-in-law to help with the blending. Juan and the rest of the team would spit the wine into a bucket as they tasted each batch for blending. His father-in-law did not (would not and could not) spit. He said “make me a wine with less alcohol.” The first vintage was a blend of Pais, Malbec and Cinsault (the same base wine as the Impostor, with only 10% alcohol). The wine has since evolved and is now 50/50 Cinsault and Pais from 50–70-year-old ungrafted bush-head, dry-farmed, organic vines, planted to granitic soils whose roots extend 10 meters in depth. Fermented in stainless steel, this is an easy to drink Tinto with great acidity and freshness.
Fresh and fruity, approachable light red. Rustic and spicy, offering a mouthful of red cherries and tangy red currants
