Teran is an old indigenous Istrian grape variety with characteristic ruby-red colour. After long maceration, the wine ages in oak barrels for 16-18 months. Its intense aroma is reminiscent of berries and tobacco, with dry, longlasting tannic taste.
Relatively high content of acids and a slight note of tartness, together with high extract, adds to this wine a typical taste of a full, strong and robust but at the same time pleasantly crafted wine. Because of its characteristic fullness and high contents of polyphenols (tannin, anthocyane) it is considered to have healthy qualities.
Food pairing: This wine matches perfectly with venison dishes, red meat with truffels, istrian ham.
|Serving temp.||16-18 ºC|
The story of winegrowing in the Markežić family dates back as far as 1891 when the first cornerstone was laid with the Momjan Muscat.
Since then up to the present day hardworking and patient hands have been weaving this incredible wine story inspired by the desire to distinguish oneself by being genuine and unique. Today they managed to shape our own recognizable style through the brand KABOLA.
Situated at the north-west of the Istrian penninsula, on 275 m above the sea level, with the view of the Alps and Dolomites on one side and the lush greenery of intact nature and a beautiful sea panorama on the other. The vineyards are located on a hill Stancija in the vicinity of the winery at Kanedolo near Momjan. The soil consists mainly of clay and is rich in marl, giving the wines their special characteristics.
Kabola wines stand out from the crowd by their organic principles in wine production.
