2012 Piquentum "Terre" Istria Croatia

SKU #1173369

Decanter called Croatia's Istria region the "new Tuscany" for the exciting wines it's currently producing. (09/2014) From the importer: "A light-bodied, low-alcohol wine with acidity built for the Istrski priut (Istrian Prosciutto) that happens to hang from the ceiling of the winery. While Refosk is in the Refosco family, it differs in that it ripens later and often has more pronounced ripe fruit. Historically, Refosk was given to woman after childbirth to combat anemia due to the rich iron content. A great pairing with charcuterie, oily cured fish, fish stews, and blood sausage. Locals make "Istarska supa," a slightly warmed broth of wine, toasted country bread, olive oil, sugar, and a healthy dose of black pepper."
