The grapes for this wine are of the Plavac Mali variety, which is the most famous local variety. They are sourced from the best plots of 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 250 meters. 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 hectoliters, which results in concentrated fruitiness and freshness. Irrigation is performed only in the 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 new barrique barrels made from French and American oak for 12 months. After filling, it is aged for at least 6 months before it is released into the market.
Color shows maturity with a delicate garnet hue. Aromas are vibrant, complex and inviting including notes of dark fruits, sage, fresh meat and wild berries.
