Simcic 0010 opoka rebulaEN

Wine description

Deep yellow colour, with mineral fragrances. Clear, although only decanted and not filtered before bottling. The nose of the wine displays its nobility. Pleasant note. Fresh, well-balanced between alcohol and acids, announcing longevity. Persistent and very complex taste, tending to mature grape.

With food

We recommend it with white meat, fresh goat cheese, fish carpaccio, vegetable dishes (rizi bizi, pasta with basil), ideal with raw salmon, fresh salads with herbs and fruit salads with mint.

Aging

Suitable for drinking now, with great ageing potential, over 15 years.
