Wow, the experience this time is positively different. A beautiful and charming bouquet of dog rose, sour cherry, white pepper, raw meat and balsamic. Juicy and a bit funky. Good balance, where acidity and tannin work together to please my buds (taste buds, yo). The aftertaste is long. Complex and interesting.

Tasted blind. Didn't guess. Turned out to be a Pinot Noir made by Greek in Collio. A fistful of sour berries (dogwood and red currant), leather, white pepper and balsamic. It's intriguing, but I find it hard to drink this wine. VA is not well integrated, and instead of increasing complexity, it just bothers me. On the other hand, it has good fruit.
Today, the winery is run by brothers Alexis and Jannis Paraschos and their father Evangelos. With Greek origin and the Italian/Slovene border situation, the brothers speak Greek with their father, Italian between themselves, Slovene with their workers, and English with most of their clients.
The 7 hectares owned by Paraschos are divided among 10 terraced vineyards in Slatnik, between San Floriano and Oslavia, on a typical and unique soil called "Ponca", based on marlstone rich in minerals of Eocene origin. The family cultivates Ribolla Gialla, Friulano, Malvasia Istriana, Pinot Grigio, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
