The grapes for this wine are of the autochthonous Tribidrag variety (with a smaller content of up to 15% of the international variety Tempranillo), which is known as Zinfandel in the USA or as Primitivo in Italy.They are sourced from our own organic vineyards in the Komarna winegrowing area.
The vineyards are located on south-facing slopes with an incline of up to 30%, at an altitude between 50 and 100 metres. The earth is karst-like and consists of limestone with a small content of soil. The yield of wine per hectare is quite small and amounts to 18 to 27 hectolitres, which results in concentrated fruitiness and freshness.Irrigation is performed only in case of exceptional drought.
WINEMAKING AND AGEING:
Processing and vinification begin with the selection of grapes at our winery after they have been picked by hand. The owners perform this selection personally to make sure that only the best grapes are sent for further processing.The wine undergoes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in a tank under controlled conditions. After this, it is aged under professional supervision in old barrique barrels made from French and American between 8 to 10 months. After filling, it is aged for at least 6 months before it is released into the market.
It displays a youthful ruby colour. Aromas are restrained and elegant gradually revealing subtle notes of red fruits, blackberry jam and a hint of spices. On the palate it is dry, with assertive firm structure and balancing freshness. This is still a young wine that will repay patience by further ageing in the bottle. When served it is recommended to decant and aerate in order to help reveal its potential.
Best served at 18*C, by itself or accompanied by meat dishes, rich pasta dishes, pizza, cold meats and hard cheeses.
