Winemaker Notes

Medium depth and garnet color proudly showing its age. Nose is mature, gentle, rather subtle, fine and layered. Seamless. Nose of spices and blackcurrant gives a sense of Bordeaux grapes, coming from fresher, cooler climate. These are complemented with notes of truffles, dark chocolate and fine oak. Dry on the palate, with mature, supple tannins and silky texture. The aroma fills the mouth completely and gives unique, long lasting experience. This is quintessential Movia, demonstrating elegance and complexity. It is in excellent condition now, but will last for another two decades.

Blend: Merlot 50%, Pinot Noir 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 20%

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
Veliko rosso is a blend of 50 percent merlot, 30 pinot nero and 20 cabernet sauvignon. Ales Kristancic harvests and ferments the three varieties together, then ages the wine in French oak barrels for six years without racking. It’s astonishingly fresh, with potent red currant and blackberry flavors and undulating layers of savory herbs, mint and eucalyptus that exude a kinetic energy. Publisher Josh Greene noted that this would hold its own with a top-flight 2006 Bordeaux. The flavors are refined and lasting, maintaining clarity over several days. This is delicious now, and will remain so for another ten years.

Movia Winery Image
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.

A picturesque, eastern European wine growing nation, Slovenia can claim one of the most ancient winemaking cultures in all of Europe. Its history dates back to the Celts and Illyrians tribes, well before the Romans had any influence on France, Spain or Germany. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that Slovenia developed a more refined, private-sector wine industry.

Today it is a powerful source of some of the industry’s most important orange wines (whites made with extended skin contact); furthermore, fully three quarters of the country’s wine production is white.

Slovenian weather is continental with hot summers and cold, wet winters. It is divided into three wine regions: Podravje in Slovenia’s northeast; Primorska in its west, close to Italy; and Posavje in its southeast. These are further divided to nine wine districts.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
