The Roxanich Venezia is our tribute to “La Serenissima” - the historical Republic of Venetia, our ancestors, and our history. It was a turbulent time of constant change, and this is precisely how the Roxanich Venezia was born: with the idea to create a bottled history of our heritage.
The Roxanich Venezia represents pulsating life - for this reason, Roxanich Venezia could only ever be a red wine - as turbulent, in constant changes and contrasts, as ancient Venice itself.
An assemblage of indigenous and internationally known varieties such as Merlot, Teran, Refosco and Cabernet Sauvignon, each vinified sometimes as a single wine, sometimes jointly as a field blend, then assembled into a beautifully balanced red. Mladen’s idea was to show life in renaissance Venice - a wine rich with joy, dynamic and loaded with energy.
Beginning with a nice rolling movement in the glass, the Roxanich Venezia offers young but smooth tannins, dressed in dark berries, creating a firework of fruits that explode on your palate. A bold, bright taste to echo our region’s history.

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.
