“The conditions of soil and climate of a winegrowing area influence, in many respects, the organoleptic characteristics of the grapes, and therefore the wine.
In the area of Koreniki, the crucial role in this respect is played by the red soil characterised by white calcareous stone, as well as the impact of the sea, dense forest with ancient oaks and rich fauna. All of which belongs to the landscape of Koreniki in Istria.
Characteristic minerality, fruitiness and freshness in wines, with exceptional structural balance are the expression of this terroir, just like the people who farm this land. Humble, but determined, people ahead of their time, people who know how to listen to the elderly, who have realised that to rule nature is to serve it…”
Through a bottle labelled Coronica we convey the spirit of the Istrian land, the indigenous varieties and the local way of life.
So maybe it won’t sound pretentious to say that by working our land, among the vines, we have been shaping our own lives. It is our duty to leave to our children the same land that we have been left with. We work this land with all our heart and soul. And on this path we want to leave our mark, woven into the local indigenous varieties, Istrian Malvasia and Teran.
Malvasia Coronica stays on fine lees from harvest till the spring, then it is bottled. A small part of the wine is cold-macerated to obtain the characteristic flavor and fullness. The aroma reminds of the scent of meadow flowers, resin and Mediterranean air which makes this wine an ideal company with seafood dishes and dishes with white truffles.
