The wine embodies all the elements that we hold close to our hearts, bold character while maintaining extreme elegance and finesse, rendering a wonderfully approachable experience. Blending of red and white wines is a passion that we commit to at Nitida, producing wines that are at all times more than the sum of the parts.”
