Primorska, Slovenia
Historical records show that the Roman Empress Livija Drussila who lived to the enviable age of 86 years (at that time) presumably by many references to her enjoyment of the this “black grape” from Timavo River(Triest river from sea).
This wine sees 10 months in used oak, no filtration.

The Southwestern part of Slovenia is the only region with the prevailing influence of the Mediterranean climate, which leaves a strong mark on the wines. During the hot, dry summers and mild winters with a strong bora wind, the winemakers of Primorska have been developing different white and red varieties of grapes for centuries. Numerous winemakers of Primorska are internationally recognised, while their wines are served in some of the best restaurants in the world.

The wine-growing region of Primorska has four wine-growing districts; each one has its own features, while all of them primarily produce strong, dry wines. Red wines prevail in the districts of Slovenian Istra and Karst, while winemakers in the wine-growing districts of Goriška Brda and the Vipava Valley primarily produce white wines, although red wines still represent a very important share.
