Region: Goriška Brda, Primorska, Slovenia Grape(s): 40% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon Drinks Best: Now - 3 Years
The Brda winegrowing region, sometimes referred to as the ‘Tuscany of Slovenia’ for its rolling hillsides covered with vineyards reminiscent of Central Italy, is uniquely located where the Alps meet the Mediterranean. This combination of warm sea air and cooling mountain winds provides local farmers with ideal growing conditions for red wine grapes, as the Krasno blend deftly illustrates. The wine sees neutral oak, keeping the focus on fruit and terroir. An inviting nose of dry earth, blackberry and plum is complimented by an elegant smoky,mocha mid-palate. The medium-body and supple tannins make for a beautifully structured wine from start to finish.
Pairings: Burgers, dogs, veggie kabobs, or tempeh - whatever you plan on grilling!
