The wine produced from the grape variety Merlot is rich in alcoholic content and acids. After long maceration, the wine ages in oak barrels for 16-18 months. Its colour is intense ruby-red with the reflections of purple. Because of its dominant grassy aroma and the sour cherry and blueberry aromas, this wine possesses an interesting balance of fruity and spicy flavours. The body is rich, longlasting and nicely balanced.
Food pairing: This wine matches superbly with red meat dishes with truffels, meat roasts, Istrian ham, cheeses of medium texture.
|Serving temp.||16-18 ºC|
The story of winegrowing in the Markežić family dates back as far as 1891 when the first cornerstone was laid with the Momjan Muscat.
Since then up to the present day hardworking and patient hands have been weaving this incredible wine story inspired by the desire to distinguish oneself by being genuine and unique. Today they managed to shape our own recognizable style through the brand KABOLA.
Situated at the north-west of the Istrian penninsula, on 275 m above the sea level, with the view of the Alps and Dolomites on one side and the lush greenery of intact nature and a beautiful sea panorama on the other. The vineyards are located on a hill Stancija in the vicinity of the winery at Kanedolo near Momjan. The soil consists mainly of clay and is rich in marl, giving the wines their special characteristics.
Kabola wines stand out from the crowd by their organic principles in wine production.
