Babic 2019
Josipa Marinov

+

This native Croatian grape, Babić, produces an elegant food pairing wine here! Six days of maceration and aged for nine months in stainless steel. Herbs on the nose paired with dark fruits. The palate has smooth tannins with nice acidity.

Tasting Notes: Dark fruit along with hints of earth.

Pairing Suggestions: Lamb, Cheese Tray, BBQ

Dalmatia, Croatia

Type: Red | Vintage: 2019 | Sulfur: Minimal | Varietal: Babić | Alcohol: 13% | Production: Organic | Style: Food Wine

Josipa’s and Neno’s vineyards are situated just a few meters above sea level on a mixture of karst and crvenica soil. Crvenica (terra rossa) is a type of soil characteristic of the subtropical and Mediterranean karst regions. Hard ground, tight, and with little humus. However, it easily absorbs and keeps the water long enough to allow grapes to survive during the dry, hot, and long Mediterranean summer. This type of land is created by the dissolution of limestone and dolomite and represents its irrepressible residue. It is clayey and mildly structured. Babić is an indigenous Croatian varietal, grown only in North Dalmatia, especially around the town of Primosten. It is planted in dry stone pools with only 3-4 plants , very hard to farm, and inaccessible to machines. Josipa’s approach in the vineyard and cellar is not organic or biodynamic, rather than a real traditional way of winemaking, or as she calls it “as our elders did it 100 years ago, with some improvements.” - Zev Rovine
