Authentic Istrian red similar to red Bordeaux wines, in particular Pomerol from warmer harvests. In colour it is deep, dark red with hints of violet proving the liveliness and intensity in flavour. The scent is persisting and seductive with dominating spices of cedar and tobacco, followed by fruits (after 10 minutes) in particular blackcurrants, plums and dark cherries. Though the scent is very rich, true luxury is felt on the palate: freshness and juicy fruitiness go side by side, intertwined with smoked nuances.
Wine has typical acidity of Istrian reds which guarantee the longevity of wine and long lasting in the mouth. Tannins are firm but polished to perfection, giving extra fullness and structure. Overall impression could be described as explosion of fruitiness and spices that go on for minutes and minutes, above all expectations, with a unique aftertaste blending the blackcurrant, baked cherries and tobacco. This is the wine with a great potential, ready for consummation but perfect for bottle again: in following 10 year it could only gain on the complexity.
Food pairing: Steak and other juicy red meats in general. Goes fine with fetter and more salty meats like lamb or crispy roasted duck. Also grilled veal, veal chopS.
