Wine & Spirits - "Ales Kristancic harvests the fruit for this wine late in the season, blending merlot (70 percent) with pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon prior to fermentation. He doesn't use commercial yeast and he doesn't sulfur the wine before bottling, allowing it to stabilize through six years in French oak barrels. The wine shows resinous hints of wood notes first, then flint, before it opens to a generous rosy scent of mountain air, fresh cherries and the cool feel of the sun on rain-washed gravel. Luscious and vibrant, this will age with grace."
Lying along the prime strip of land that adjoins the Italian and the Slovenian sides of the Collio, the Movia estate has been in existencesince the year 1700. It was purchased by the Kristancic family in 1820 and is currently run by the iconic Ales Kristancic. Growing up in the vineyards and winery on many a late evening and Saturday afternoon when he would have preferred to play soccer, the new moon rose and Ales dutifully helped his father transfer wines from barrel to barrel. Today he passionately implements the rigorous biodynamic principles handed down to him while simultaneously experimenting to produce wines of unprecedented purity and authenticity. His distinct vision stems from the wisdom of eight generations spent among the vines and in the cellar coupled with a natural intuition toward to relationship between nature, soil, vines, and wine.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
