It is as if you are observing the path that Plavac Mali’s “ancestor” had traversed, coming to Italy as Primitivo, only to set forth over the Atlantic to become Zinfandel. Dingač has its own particular path, carved through the mountain by the winegrowers, linking the vineyards to the port of Trstenik. From here, the first wines left for Europe. Dingač has always been the authentic heart of Croatian winemaking.
Nose is dominated by aromas of ripe red berry fruit,strawberries, that are intermixedwith those of cream, clove and hints of earthy elements. Aromas of Mediterranean spices and vegetative suggestions characterise this red of ruby colour. Well-balanced start reveals a warm and full-bodied wine of very pleasant acidity. Dingac is dominated by elements of chocolate and ripe fruit. Intensive notes of coffee and nutty elements in the background round-up this rich Plavac Mali.
Food pairing: Grilled fish, red meat, matches well with Dalmatian prosciutto (smoked ham).
