Refošk Reserve has an intense ruby red color with a youthful violet shade. On the nose, the wine is extremely complex and shows us that it matured in wooden oak barrels for more than 30 months. It surprises us with notes of jams and marmalades (plum, raspberry, and sour cherry), coffee, and chocolate. In the body, the wine is still fresh and lively with almost velvet-like tannins and a taste of ripe and over-ripe fruits. In the mouth, the wine is fresh and sparkling with almost velvety tannins and a rich body of ripe and overripe berries. The aftertaste is fresh and fruity and shows excellent aging potential.
