  • Black pepper
  • Cherry
  • Cranberries
  • Dry plum

This wine is from a location in Contarini, one of the best wine-growing areas in Istria. Steady and harmonious, with balanced juiciness. Cranberry gives the flavoring while minerality gives the elegance. The wine has a dark ruby color, and after aromas of dried plums and ripe cherries it reveals violet and fine notes of black pepper. The taste is powerful and quite warm, with a long end and hint of dark chocolate.
