01: Wine characteristics and description

This is the vision of the next generation as a “timeless expression of terroir.” It’s a limited production of just 1200 bottles from 80 and 90-year-old vines, fermented for two weeks on skins in clay vessels. It’s a perfumed amber wine with hints of Mediterranean herbs, mandarin and tropical fruit. To taste, it has superb texture and generous, profound fruit, with hints of dried peach, mango, grapefruit zest and thyme. It’s whistle-clean and precise with a tangy, saline finish.

02: Leonardo's Vision

Numerals One is my first released wine. My vision is to push boundaries in creating unique natural wines. The One showcases two exceptional indigenous varieties, Sauvignon Vert and Ribolla, that are hand-picked from vineyards of 90 and 80 years. The whole process stands out through an extreme selection process and all-natural traditional winemaking methods that my grandfathers used, where only 5% passed the test of greatness. Numerals One is a limited edition of 1000 bottles, a timeless expression of unparalleled character."

LEONARDO SIMČIČ, the 6th generation of the Simčič family.

Vintage 2019

2019

2019

We experienced a relatively mild winter, providing a favorable start to the new growing season. However, during the flowering of the vines in the last weeks of May, we faced bad weather that lowered the quantities of the 2019 vintage. The hot and very dry summer again contributed to a slightly smaller harvest, but we were pleased with the quality of the grapes. Elevated temperatures in July and August enabled normal berry development, ensuring excellent phenolic maturity. Harvesting occurred through multiple rounds as we carefully sought optimal characteristics for each grape variety.
