Wine we like: Piquentum, Blanc, 2012, Istria, Croatia
January 7, 2014
Malvasia is one of my favorite varieties; therefore there are not many malvasias I haven’t tasted. And therefore I’m always searching for something new … Blanc 2012 from Dimitri Brečević is actually malvasia. And not another (new) malvasia – but next big thing (not only malvasia, but also cellar Piquentum – named after ancient name for Buzet)! After first, look, smell and sip I fell in love with this excellent bio-dynamic grown wine. Color of the sun, smell of white and yellow flowers and earth, elegant body and elegance of great wines - pure essence of Istrian terroir!
