Wine region: Slovenian Istria
Variety: 100% refosco
Maturation: wooden barrels
Deep, opaque, still purple after five years. The bouquet has matured nicely. Black pepper, dried herbs, fine leather, a little after roasting. No overripe, marmalade notes. Maturation in wood is gently indicated. The wine is dry, the texture is smooth, oily, the tannins higher, firm and flexible, the acids higher. It is a wine with a solid structure and an abundance of fruit charge. Despite the high alcohol level, it is not hot, but very coordinated. Full of flavor. Everything is in place, everything is just right and nothing too much. Great! Perhaps the best Refošk Antonius so far.
Food matching: venison, barbecue, steak.
