Wine region: Bela krajina
Boris’s tip: Modra Frankinja is queen of Bela Krajina. Great red wine with forest fruits aromas.
Medium deep ruby colors with purple hues. The bouquet is medium accentuated, beautifully ripe, floral. Ripe dark red and black forest fruits, a nice touch of wood. Very nice. Dry in the mouth, firmer, firm, tasty. It works very ripe, with a hint of jam notes, but stays lively with a nice amount of acidity. With soft tannins and a long aftertaste. It is matured for 1 year in larger oak barrels, so we get a neat blue frankincense with a fruity aftertaste. Modra frankinja is an autochthonous Slovenian variety.
