Winemaking Notes: The skins remain in contact with the must during fermentation, which that lasts between 12 and 14 days. Fermentation occurs naturally with native yeast. This is followed by a submerged cap maceration. After the alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation completes in the cellar at temperature of 20°C (68°F). The wine ages in large traditional Slavonian oak casks for 22 months and matures in the bottle for at least 8 months. No filtration or clarification before bottling.
Pairing Suggestions: Red meat dishes, roasts, and mature cheeses.
