The Spanish 'Tintito' translates to 'Little Red' in English.
About the Wine
This is a delicious medium bodied red blend from Ben and Mauricio at Somos wines.
It's a blend of Grenache, Nero d'Avola and Aglianico built with easy drinking in mind and an 'Italian-ate' feel. The aim here was to create "Vin de soif, made for easy drinking with interest." and they've nailed the MO.
This is a top value little red and is squarely in no-brainer territory for those chasing a medium-bodied red that is loaded with charisma.
The Somos wines are the product of two enthusiastic young winemakers - one Australian and one Mexican - looking to make interesting and contemporary wines from McLaren Vale.
Benjamin Caldwell and Mauricio Ruiz Cantu are the creative duo behind this exciting project, with the wines exported back to South & Central America as well as sold through just a handful of outlets and venues locally in Australia.The focus is on 'alternative' varieties from sustainably managed vineyards - their Aglianicos being of particular note.
Their unique wines are made with a deft touch, the resulting styles perfumed and balanced, bursting with energy and personality. Just minuscule volumes produced, but great fun to be had across the Somos range.
