Sold Out!

Vintage: 2016

Varietals: Croatina

Farming: Organic, No added SO2

It presents itself to the eye with an intense ruby red color and expresses to the nose rich and fruity notes of cherries, dried violets and small berries, revealing itself in a full and fruity mouthfeel, rightly tannic and refreshing, with a long aromatic persistence.

100% Croatina coming from a pretty hot vintage giving way to a full bodied red which perfectly reflects the terroir and the vintage with its lively tannins wraped around a core of dark fruit. Hand harvested grapes are totally destemmed. The must is left to ferment with the skins in concrete vats for about 15 days with daily pump-overs. Then the wine rests for 30 months until bottling, preceded by a single coarse filtration (10 micron). Wine is left in the bottle for about 10/12 months. No added SO2.
