Dario Princic 'Sivi' 2016
'As a child, Dario Princic worked in his family's vineyards. Since 1988, he has been cultivating his own plots not using chemical products using the principles of biodynamic agriculture. He is one of the leading producers of orange wines. The soil consists of a limestone rock called Ponka crumbly clay, marl derived from sandstone. Harvests are carried out manually and the grapes ferment spontaneously with their native yeasts. The must macerate in open wooden vats where it remains in contact with the skins for 7 days. The wine is aged for 30 months in oak barrels and three months in steel vats, then it is bottled unfiltered. Ripe exotic fruits and candied citrus. On the palate it has a mineral and salty hue, it is fresh, with noticeable but not overpowering tannins.'
