Castelvecchio Vitovska 2022

Friuli-Venezia Giulia, ItalyCastelvecchio is a part of the Karst (Carso) area in the province of Gorizia The dry, rocky soils are layered with red sand, iron, and limestone, and the vineyards are cooled by breezes from the Istrian Peninsula. Native to the area, this organic vitovksa was fermented and rested on lees in concrete. Perfumed lemon, musk melon, rosewater slips along a linear palate, with a very subtle concrete grip. The finish lingers with crushed stones. Floral and stony, and marine shaped, this is quite a smart wine for enjoying now.Tasted: 24 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
