Tikves Barovo 2017

Dark red color with purple reflections. Complex aromas of dry blackberries, raspberries and dry plums, combine with subtle hints of vanilla and toasty notes. Ideally balanced acids with soft tannins make this wine full, extractive with a powerful structure and a long juicy aftertaste. Beautifully textured with a mouth-filling palate of ripe berried fruits against a mineral backdrop and a long lasting finish.

TikveŇ° Winery‚Äôs 3 hectare Barovo vineyard is one of the highest in the Balkans, 1100m at its highest, which gives a wide daily temperature which aids ripening and well drained soils which makes the vines work hard for their low yields. The grape varieties used here are Vranac 35%, a thin skinned grape that produces ripe, dark fruited wines with high alcohol and ripe tannins and Kratosija 65%, local name for Primitivo, aged for 12 months in French oak, these two grapes make a heady brew with dried dark berries and ripe plums and figs the tannins are ripe and give nice balance to this long, warm, powerful wine.
