Wine Enthusiast 92. This aged wine displays a lovely, deep ruby red color. It is clear and full-bodied. The bouquet opens with berry notes dominated by blueberry, followed by vanilla and dark chocolate, dust, cedar and leather. It is dry, partly warm and soft, while retaining a lovely freshness. The wine has lovely tannins, excellent minerality and a full body. It is balanced and intense in flavor with a long finish. It is refined and harmonious, with notes of prune in the aftertaste. Use of amphoras in production: The use of clay amphoras in the process of making wine, made it possible to raise the quality of the maceration itself. Our amphoras originate from Georgia, from which the oldest produced wines in the world originate, according to whose recipe we also nurture wines of our indigenous varieties. For this type of vinification, we have reserved grapes from our most prestigious vineyard on the hill “Stancija”. It is from this white clay soil that the roots of the vine of Istrian Malvasia and Teran draw the ingredients that make them so special. Mulching grapes in an amphora, prolonged fermentation, resting young wine without removing the grape skins until spring, pressing, these are all primordial ways by which “grapes are turned into wine”, not those by which “man produces wine”. After maceration in amphoras, the wine continues to mature in large wooden barrels where Malvasia favors the creation of a bright amber color and Teran an attractive ruby red color with a purple sheen. For lovers of authentic and unadulterated wines, we recommend this Amphora Malvasia and Amphora Teran, which discreetly hides its noble origins, invites you to taste it in small sips and to think about the simple values that the country gives us.
