Unlike many of the stainless-aged Italian wines available, even the white wines of Simcic are fermented and aged for long periods in oak, and are therefore almost French in style. Many top critics consider him to be the best winemaker in Slovenia. Third and fourth generation winemakers, he and his son Aleks are stubborn, persistent and hard-working but also open-minded when it comes to trying new ideas.
Deep, ruby colour with tinges of garnet showing bit of development. Intense on the nose, still quite youthful regardless of age. It shows plenty of ripe dark red and black fruits, nicely knit with scents of maturation in high quality oak barrels. Black cherry, sour cherry, vanilla, a hint of spicy black pepper as well as smoke. With time gentle floral sensations such as violets are coming
through. All this is nicely interlaced in joint, very inviting, high quality aromatic sensation. Quite vibrant. Dry on the palate, full bodied. With grippy tannins, plenty of structure. Acidities are
ripe, quite high. With a rich, intense, complex aroma on the palate which is lasting. With long aftertaste full of fruits and sweet spices like cloves and nutmeg.
