In the Slovenian Istria, within the vineyards of Debeli rtič, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes mature in Eocene flysch soil. Handpicked in early October, the grapes undergo a 16-day maceration followed by two years of aging in barrique barrels and further refinement in large oak casks. This wine captivates with its intense ruby color, aroma of ripe cherries, dark chocolate, and subtle wood notes, along with a full-bodied flavor accentuated by velvety tannins.
