An assemblage of a light and young character with refreshing energy, coming out of the bottle in golden nuances, the Roxanich Rovigno is arguably the superstar of the entire First Roses range.
The Roxanich Rovigno, as the name implies, is an assemblage of three world famous white grape varieties dedicated to that most recognizable icon of the Adriatic coast and Istria - the postcard-perfect city of Rovinj.
How to capture the beauty of such a city in a bottle?
Three varietals of Malvasia Istriana, Pinot Blanc, and Chardonnay are macerated and spontaneously fermented to embody the sun, the land, and the soul of Istria in a dry, soft and velvety white with pears flavors, dried fruit stones, a scent of nuts, minerality, and a hint of white pepper.
Tannins are alive and smooth, tickling across the palate. The aftertaste is soft, fresh and spectacularly long-lasting – like a memory of Istria’s most favored city.

If our wine has travelled by post or in the trunk of your car, please allow it a week to settle at its new premises before opening. Please keep it always out of sunlight and at a temperature of under 15 degrees Celsius. It’s strictly natural wine, so it develops best with a lot of fresh air at consumption. Therefor please open - and decant if possible - the red wines several hours before consumption - best at noon if you plan to drink them for dinner - and the white wines at least two hours before consumption. Please place special attention to wine glasses: our natural wines are best experienced in as wide and open glasses as possible, allowing them to develop they stunning array of scents and aromas to their full potential.
Thanking you for such a treatment, Roxanich wines will return this care generously with stunning new levels of enjoyment.
