Wines of Illyria BLATINA(Blah-tee-nah)
Native Variety from Ancient Illyria
Top Quality Dry Red Wine
This wine is made of 100% Blatina, an indigenous grape of the Hercegovina region. Blatina variety, has a functional female flower, rendering it auto-sterile, meaning it requires other varieties to be planted nearby in order to pollinate and allow fruits. Blatina produces a delicious dry red wine with a dark, ruby red color. It opens gradually on the nose with soft aromas of black currant and elderberry and a hint of liquorice. The palate reveals full, fresh notes of dark berries, traces of dried figs, roasted almonds, ripe plums and chocolate, with an undertone of minerality and a savory dash of saltiness. Delicious freshness highlights the well-integrated acidity. A perfect summer grill wine. Alc. 13% By Vol.
