Producer - Kozlovic

The Kozlovic family have been making wine in the Istrian region of Croatia since 1904. The region borders Friuli and the wines, food and people have a real connection with their Italian neighbours. The winery is run by Gianfranco and Antonella Kozlovic and they currently cultivate 17 hectares of vineyards. Gianfranco is a perfectionist and is constantly striving for ways to improve his wines. He has a real modern approach to winemaking.
Vineyard

The Zmergo vineyards are situated at an altitude of 240 metres above sea level and have a southerly orientation to maximise the vine's exposure to the sun. The vines have an average age of 28 years and are grown in soils that are composed of flysch, limestone and clay.
Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand, carefully sorted and then underwent a five day maceration. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures. The wine was then matured in wooden barrels of 30hl for eight months, prior to bottling.
Tasting Note

A fresh and medium bodied red wine with a combination of black fruits and bitter chocolate, reminiscent of Refosco from Northern Italy.
Serving Suggestion

Teran is ideally served with lasagne, pasta with meatballs and a tomato based sauce, or grilled pork, lamb and game.
