Refosco, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small balance of Teran. The 2017 has a structure defined by the producer as "minor" compared to other vintages, as it was marked by significant rainfall in the pre-harvest period.

The tasting presents us with an elegant wine with fine notes of red fruit, in the mouth it is taut and vertical, with good texture and excellent acidity. Balanced with well-integrated tannins, it closes on notes of underbrush and spices.

From the producer

Giorgio Clai

Giorgio Clai founded, in 2001, his winery in Krasica, a village in the municipality of Buje, in white Istria, Croatia. After dedicating his life to catering, he decided to devote himself to his dream: wine. 

The vineyard's soils, of clay-arenary marl, enjoy a microclimate particularly favorable to vine cultivation, due to the meeting of the mountain current coming from the Ucka with the sea current, which flows up the Mirna River. He thus cultivates his 10 hectares according to the principles of biodynamic philosophy, using only sulfur and copper as treatments, with the utmost respect for the nature on which they grow.
