Terrain: The picturesque hills near Marezige and Truške are located 5 km from the Adriatic sea, more specifically the Gulf of Trieste. Rodica family vineyards are planted at 250-350 meters asl, terraced, facing South. They enjoysignificant day-night temperature swings, constantbreezes, which keeps the vineyards well-ventilated andnaturally healthy for organic farming. The soil is rich withminerals, consisting predominantly of limestone. Thevines are forced to “fight” to get water, which results inbetter quality grapes.

Farming: Certified Organic. Every second row of the vineyard is empty and planted with grass. Only natural fertilizer produced from natural manure is allowed. The vineyards are worked without any irrigation.

Vinification: Hand-harvested grapes go through a quick 1-hour maceration period, ferment naturally and age for 12 months in stainless steel tanks. Next harvest, unfermented Refošk is added to the wine and secondary fermentation begins. The fermenting wine is then bottled with crown caps, natural fermentation continues in the bottles. The wine is not disgorged, hence the “col fondo” sediment.

Tasting Notes: A naturally made sparkling Refosco. Think undisgorged Champagne method light red sparkling wine. Darker than a rose, playful strawberry and spice aromas, friendly and amazingly refreshing on the palate, with bright acidity and soft tannins.

Serve it cold as an aperitif, with charcuterie, young cheeses, or not so sweet panna cotta or strawberry cheesecake.
