Dario Prinčič Bianco Trebež 2015

The 2015 Bianco Trebež is a blend of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are sourced from 35-year-old vines. Each variety is fermented and macerated separately in open vats. Pinot Grigio spends 8 days in contact with skins, while the other grapes macerate for 18 days before being assembled and aged in large oak barrels for up to 3 years.

After the delicate Vitovska, the Bianco Trebež kicks in with its expressive and intense bouquet dominated by VA, spoiled apricots, uzvar, peach, spices and dried herbs. With time it calms down a bit, it doesn't become more complex or interesting just less crazy. Medium+ body. Good acidity, tannin, balance and persistence. Quite complex yet a bit too vulgar for my taste.

Dario Prinčič

Dario Prinčič established his namesake winery in 1993, marking a significant transition from his family's longstanding tradition of selling grapes to other local wineries. It wasn't long before Dario began to innovate; just six years into the winemaking business, he started experimenting with maceration techniques for white wines. This process imbued the wines with a remarkable complexity and texture, captivating Dario to such an extent that he resolved to apply maceration across his entire production in the subsequent year.

Today, Dario Prinčič's winery is a family-run affair, overseeing 10 hectares of densely planted vineyards. These vineyards are uniquely situated, benefiting from a soil composition rich in clay and sandstone, which is instrumental in the distinctive character and terroir expression of their wines. This combination of soil types contributes significantly to the depth and nuance found in their wine offerings.

Under Dario's guidance, the winery has become renowned for its commitment to natural winemaking practices. Dario Prinčič is often recognized as one of the trailblazers in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region for adopting and perfecting the art of extended skin contact in white wines. This innovative approach not only distinguishes their wines but also reflects a deep respect for tradition and a bold willingness to redefine it.

The Prinčič wines are celebrated for their rich, expressive nature, combining traditional techniques with a modern sensibility. By embracing the full potential of their grapes and terroir, the winery continues to be a testament to the evolution and diversity of Italian winemaking.
