Boris’s tip: Full body merlot. Red berries and green pepper aromas. Take with meat, truffles and mushrooms.
This is a rich dry red wine. It is named after the sunny vineyard above Solkan, its ruby colour is immediately pleasing. This is accompanied by a bouquet reminiscent of fragrant red fruits and berries. This red wine has all the characteristics of good merlot, it’s warm, strong and masculine, it likes to be accompanied by strong and spicy meat dishes but a glass of this merlot by itself can be just as satisfying.
UOU natural orange and red wines are produced from grapes of abandoned vineyards. A consortium of abandoned vineyards cleaned, planted and strengthened them to bring new youth to life in their old age.
