A perfect gift for people who value elegant wine.
The SuperIstrian is Roxanich’s allegorical approach to the mythical Super Tuscans. Without any constraint, Mladen Rožanić permitted himself to demonstrate what Bordelaise varietals in combination with indigenous ones could offer to the distinguished palate of a wine connoisseur.
On the other hand, the SuperIstrian was always meant to be a symbol for the personal and collective achievements of the people of Istria. With this wine, we cherish the dedication and effort in performing exceptional contributions to our society. Mladen Rožanić’s Philosophy of long ageing is teaching us here why outmost care and love during the ageing process are so important for wine.
The Roxanich SuperIstrian is an assemblage of the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Borgonja grape varieties. The deep ruby- red SuperIstrian exudes a harmonious, fruity and floral aroma, violets, cherries and blueberries, with a hint of chocolate and black pepper in the finish.
The Roxanich SuperIstrian is foremost a distinguishably elegant red wine, full bodied and strong, but at the same time very pleasant, balanced and smooth. Low in acidity yet dry, with a persistent and pleasureful aftertaste.
The Borgonja grape adds a particular spice to this red wine blend, and is perfectly harmonized with the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Succulent tannins and lively acids are beautifully complemented by ripe fruits on the palate. With age, the SuperIstrian’s tannins have become extremely rounded up and incredibly silky.
