The vineyards of Central Istria, the site of Brdo, Grimalda. A cuvée of merlot and terrano, in 85/15 ratio. The grapes are very complex due to low yields, up to 1 kg per vine. Maceration and fermentation on the marc for up to two weeks, followed by pouring and aging in French oak allier/troncais barrels for about 15 months. After aging in the barrels, it needs more aging in stainless steel and in the bottle. The wine of the terroir, with accentuated freshness and minerality, Burgundy style, very long-lasting in the mouth. Complex regardless of new vineyards. Great.
