Babic Pilizota kvalitetno, 2009
Type: Red wine
From the vineyards on the outskirts of Šibenik, Croatia, comes this babić by winemaker Vinko Piližota. Aged for 12 months in large Slavonian oak, this babić gives us aromas of ripe dark fruit, particularly blackberries, blueberries, plums, and figs.These aromas are accompanied by the typical earthiness and barnyard of the babić grape, which is what gives this wine a certain body weight. The palate is traditional babić – smooth, yet firm, mouthwatering acidity. It is gamey, and its petite tannins allow for a gentle finish. A very friendly and intriguing character invites you to keep on sipping. Enjoy with red meats, wild game, cured meats and cheese.
