Date of establishment: 1987
Location: Vipolze- Dobrovo, Goriska brda, Primorska
Winemaker: The Ronk winery was founded by the Kristancic family. Although they had been growing grapes for many years, they only decided to start producing their own wines in 1987. Ronk thinks of wine as a product that is the result of all the love and care that is given to the vines. Once the grapes have been harvested, vinification evolves at its own pace, with a minimum of intervention. Their vineyards are situated in Slovenia, barring a few that are on the other side of the border, in the Italian region of Collio.
Type: Dry red, only produced in good years · 100% merlot · 14% alcohol
Vinification: This wine, made from 50-year-old vines, is first macerated (contact with the skins) for 100 days. After pressing, the wine spends 18 months in stainless steel tanks, followed by at least 6 months ageing in the bottle.
Tasting notes: Intense aromas of dried plum, ripe raspberry, red mulberry, green notes and dried grass. Harmoniously balanced with soft tannins.
Food pairing: A good match with red meat, roast meat and wild fowl.
