Clai Ottocento red 2013
One of the most prominent Istrian red blends. Giorgio Clai is the most passionate winemaker on the Istrian peninsula. His wines can be found in the top New York and San Francisco restaurants. “I am making wine in the vineyard, not in the winery!” he will proudly tell you. Clai is the first winery in Istria that reached the status of cult winery. They follow the principles of biodynamic viticulture.
|Region||Istria & Kvarner|
|variety||Refosco, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon|
The wine is a blend of several varieties, which gives a very rich and layered wine. Rigorous biodynamic production results in an extremely rich flavor and unusual aromas that make the wine unique in the Istria region. Black and red berries, strawberries, and black currants blend with floral moments, all discretely shrouded in a smoke at first, followed by vanilla. This is a wine for lovers of fullness, concentration, and intensity.
