Plavac Mali Barrique

Dry Red Wine

It opens with an intense and fresh dark berry fruitiness merging with copious spice notes that define the middle and finishing in a sweetness that brings the elements together, ending in a well-balanced concert of spice, mild tannins, and well-integrated acidity.

Numerous spices take over in the middle, combining into sweetness when blended with the beginning’s fruitiness. Certain spicy notes arrive through a sequence of mild tannins, well-dosed acidity and the heat of the alcohol.

With a great potential for aging, this wine will only improve over the next few years.
