Coronica Grabar 2011
As Moreno Coronica said “Life? It's wine. Just like Istria, the unique region connecting no less than three European countries (Italy, Slovenia and Croatia), wine has always been part of us. We lived from the wine in the past, just as we do today. For us, the wine is Istria.” And this wine is a reflection of that; a premium dry red wine, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Moreno Coronica offers the best of red wines that Istrian soil and wine can give in this bottle.

In the words of the winemaker, wines can be sold when they reach optimum smoothness as this is when the wines have an unlimited shelf life. The symbiosis of fruit and aging in wood gives the wine an extra dimension, which is a rarity on the Croatian wine scene. Grabar is dry, 14% alcohol, it is a harmonic, classy body, with built-in acidity and tannin in perfect cohesion.
