Tasting notes on the wine:
“It pairs wonderfully with veal, game meats like deer and venison, poultry, and dishes featuring mushrooms. Upon sipping this wine, you'll be greeted by a medley of flavors. Its fruity notes are complemented by a subtle skin contact essence,creating a layered and complex taste profile. The wine's juiciness is accompanied by a hint of pepper, adding a delightful spiciness, while a touch of funk provides a distinctive edge. The smooth finish is marked by the presence of blackberry and a gentle oak undertone, making this a captivating and memorable wine.”
About the winemaker:
“I would liken this to the 2000’s era of hip-hop because of its unique medley of notes. This is a lively, unoaked narbera that hails from the Vipava Valley, perched on the border of Slovenia near Trieste, Italy. Hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts, this red wine boasts a unique character and a vibrant personality.”
