DESCRIPTION

This is a classic Vranac from Herzegovina with distinctive flavors of dried cranberry and pleasant notes of baked bread. The taste is very refreshing, with particular tones of fresh berries. Acids are living, vibrant, and lasting with a distinguished finish of ripe cherry. This wine pairs well with grilled poultry, prosciutto and cheese, as well as lamb and veal specialties. Aged for 24 months in old monastic oak barrels.
