Grape Variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Viticulture: Natural Wine Producer & Certified Organic | Vegan Friendly
Rating: 90 Wine Spectator Points
Climate: A Mediterranean climate with moderate summers and sufficient precipitation
Terroir: Mono Guyot, 25 year old vines
Ageing: Late grape harvesting, hand-picked with a short period between the picking and fermentation – 2 hours maximum. Fermentation begins in large tanks with natural yeast picked out from the same grapes harvested during pre-harvesting (5 %). Maceration takes place for 3 to 4 weeks till the completion of fermentation until the grape skin sinks to the bottom of the tank and clarifies the wine naturally. The wine is aged in big Slovonia oak barrels for 2.5 years and bottled with no sulphur or any other additives.
Color: The colour is uncompromisingly deep, with garnet tinges
Nose: The nose just confirms maturity, while remaining fresh and firm. Dark red fruits are still there but are joined by some leathery, undergrowth and tobacco notes
Palate: It is dry and a rather elegant style showing nice Cabernet verticality, tightness and stamina. Full-bodied with brilliant fruitiness of blackcurrants
About the Winery:
Movia is more than a mere wine label, it is a way of life, life in all its purity of nature and sincerity of the author. A brand beyond time, Movia’s supreme standards are why they are sought after by so many wine connoisseurs around the world. From light classics, through a range of mature wines with good ageing potential, they are widely considered as one of the world’s finest.
A family estate with its main house in Ceglo, Movia covers 22 hectares of vineyards including many of the best parcels in the borderland between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). In the global market today, Movia is a synonym for wines with impressive character and extraordinary elegance. They offer a glimpse into the noblest of viticultural traditions.
The wines were given time to reach full maturity in their home cellar and are only released onto the market several years following their vintage. Succinctly put, they revived pre-classical vinification procedures that did not revert to sugar for re-fermentation in the bottle. Guided by winemaker Ales Kristancic, a fervent defender of Mother Nature, Movia wines are produced with the highest measure of respect towards the environment – no fining, no filtration, 100% natural.
