Wines of Illyria Blatina Premium Dry Red 2015
Blatina variety is rare, it grows only in Herzegovina and no other place in the world. It is fickle, not only dependent upon perfect climate and optimal weather conditions, it does not have the anatomy to self-pollinate and requires other varieties to be planted nearby. When conditions are just right, this rare grape produces a red, full-bodied wine with generous flavors of dark berries, hints of fig, ripe plum, earth, and chocolate.
This wine is well suited for grilled red meats, chicken, sausage, or seafood paella made with red peppers and onions; throw in the garlic and you will be in heaven.
Aromas of anise, cassis, elderberry and cranberry entice your nose in this 100% Blatina wine from Bosnia and Herzegovina. There are flavors of toasted almond, dark plum and black raspberry with just a touch of salinity on the palate. The finish is persistent with a hint of dark chocolate on the finish.
Adult Signature is required for every shipment.
