The Familia Nin-Ortiz's Planetes is a blend of young-vine Garnatxa Negra and Carinyena that is harvested by hand, partially destemmed (30%) then fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in foudre and amphorae. The freshness and brightness of Planetes is a testament to the cooler, northeast-facing site as well as the hands-off approach that Carles Ortiz and Ester Nin take in the cellar.

"A 60/40 blend of Garnacha and Cariñena from the vineyard that names the wine, the 2016 Planetes de Nin saw a similar vinification and aging as the 2017 I tasted next to it, so the differences found were only due to the vintage and the moment of harvest. This is a fresher vintage, with tantalizing aromas that are subtle and elegant, with notes of violets and red cherries, nuanced and ever-changing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and nicely textured, with very fine tannins and fine chalky minerality. 9,108 bottles were filled in April 2017. 95+ points" -  Wine Advocate
