On the nose are pronounced notes of red ripe fruit, primarily strawberries and berries, which alternate with those of cream, cloves and hints of moist earth. Aromas of Mediterranean spices and hints of vegetal-vegetable elements complete this wine with a ruby, dark red color.
A well-balanced start reveals Plavac mali, which is warm, rich and medium thick in the mouth. A full-blooded Dingač of pleasant acids and a full body. Elements of chocolate and ripe fruit predominate, alternating with intense notes of coffee and nuts in the background.
Our consultant in vineyard and winery is Michel Rolland. Vineyard is planted en gobellet type, and density of 10000 plants per hectare. It is very steep and specific, and all work in vineyard is done by hand. Inspite of very sunny weather these vines manage to keep balanced acidity and develop layered aromas, specific only for this terroir of Dingač, special for its triple insolation: from sun, reflection from sea and reflection from quartz in the soil. After being hand-harvested, this grape goes through double sorting: cluster by cluster, and then berry by berry. We crop only up to 200g per plant in this vineyard.
