Tikves Barovo Single Vineyard Red 2015
A wonderfully deep, rich and structured wine produced from the local Kratosija and Vranec varietals. The former has been found, through DNA analysis, to be the same as Tribidrag (better known as Primitivo or Zinfandel); the latter roughly translates as Black Stallion - which tells you all you need to know about the brooding character the grape brings to this wine.
Complex and elegant aromas of blackberries, plums and cherries combine with subtle hints of vanilla and toasty notes. Beautifully textured with a mouth-filling palate of ripe berried fruits against a mineral backdrop and an extremely rich and long lasting finish. 97pts Decanter
