If there is a Croatian wine that should be tasted, it is this one. Unfortunately not many people have heard of this one. Usually people hear about, and try Dingac from some bigger, or more exposed winery. But this is really something else.
I like to drink it at a bit higher temperatures. It releases all of its greatness.
Unfortunately, practically the only place to buy it is in the Lucic winery in Pijavicino, Peljesac peninsula. I know you can drink it in one restaurant in Dubrovnik, but not sure which one.
If you are passing nearby Pijavicino, it would be such a shame not to buy this. Trust me, you will not regret getting it. The only thing you could regret is not buying more, like I am. — a month ago

A souvenir brought from the interesting project Bodegas Licinia in Madrid. With some imagination you’ll find some Super Tuscany resemblance with a ripe dark fruit and floral profile with a good energy and well placed portion of oak. Hefty on the alcohol, but well embedded on the palate, with a solid intensity of ripe, yet fresh fruit, and a nice developing persistence on the palate. Good stamina throughout a solid finish.
With Cabernet Sauvignon the intension is to provide structure to the blend and yes it works; 50% Temperanillo 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 5% Merlot. Elevage in french oak Barrique oak barriques. — 2 days ago
