100% Teran – puts Croatia on the winemaking map
Piquentum has been recognised since its inception in 2006 for the quality of their work using indigenous Croatian varieties. The mother of winemaker Dimitri Brecevic was from Jurancon – providing the reason that he believes he was drawn to the world of wine. Having worked in various estates across the globe, he decided to begin his first solo project in the hometown of his father and, in the process, make wines that put Croatia back on the winemaking map. This cuvee is made with 100% Teran, a red grape variety that exudes juicy, red berry fruit and soft tannins. Here, expect bright acidity and crunchy blackcurrant notes tinged with smoke, spice and sanguine iron touches.
