Kozlović Santa Lucia Red Magnum
Istria and Primorje, Croatia
Kozlović Santa Lucia Red in magnum bottle.
A classic bordeaux with an irresistible spice of Istria expressed through purple elements, radiance and intensity of taste. It is deep and extremely dark-red in color with occasional purple reflections. An extremely rich and seductive scent with dominant herbal aromas, such as tomato leaves, which are intertwined with fresh fruit such as currants, blueberries, and cherry jam. The scent is extremely long-lasting and layered. As the wine sits in the glass, the initial fruity and fresh herbal elements are enriched with spicy hints of cloves and tobacco. The taste is exceptionally rich and full, and at the same time very fresh. It has perfectly balanced acids that give it a playful fruitiness and vibrancy, a very rich extract that gives it an impression of fullness and sweetness, well-emphasized tannins that are not astringent but give it firmness and attitude, and an extremely attractive and long-lasting aftertaste with a fruity and spicy finish. Excellent bottle aging potential. (Saša Špiranec)
