Wine Enthusiast 90. Macerated 6 months on skins. This wine features a wonderful straw-yellow color with a golden sheen. It is crystal clear and full-bodied. The bouquet opens with notes of quince compote, followed by dry fern, star anise, vanilla and herbs. This wine is dry, partly warm and soft, while retaining a crisp freshness, mild tannins, excellent minerality and full body. This is a wonderfully balanced wine with an intense flavor and a long finish. It is harmonious and flavorful with notes of butter, ripe peach and bitter almond in the aftertaste. Alcohol by volume: 14.00%. Type of pairing: fish, meat of all kinds. 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. 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.
