Sontacchi Pinot noir
Slavonia and Baranja, Croatia
Sontacchi Pinot crni (pinot noir) is different in style than most other Slavonian pinots. Light, with a lower alcohol content and no jam-like aromas or high ripeness. It can be felt that the wine comes from a warmer climate, but it is very well-controlled and has kept its freshness, vivacity and cheerful spirit. The first aromas are light red fruit on the nose and in the mouth; cherries, raspberries and strawberries. The winemaker doesn’t release it to the market while it is still young, and we certainly appreciate it. As it is so healthy, it ages very nicely and becomes reminiscent of fallen leaves, black tea and moss.
