A barnyardy, blue-fruited full-bodied red from one of Dalmatia's top producers. Babic is a native variety of the Dalmatian coast, with only some 600 hectares grown (not even 2% of all the vines in Croatia). Organic farming without irrigation, fermented with wild yeasts isolated in Bordeaux in open vats, nothing added otherwise save very minimal doses of sulfur. Aged in large Slovenian oak barrels for 6 months prior to several more in bottle.
From the mouth of the importer (Vinum USA):
"Piližota’s entry-level Babić gives us aromas of ripe dark fruit, particularly blackberries, blueberries,
plums, and figs. These aromas are accompanied by the typical earthiness and barnyard of the Babić
grape, which is what gives this wine a certain body weight and complexity. The palate is traditional
Babić – smooth, yet firm, with mouthwatering acidity. It is gamey, and its petite tannins allow for a
gentle finish. A very friendly and intriguing character invites you to keep on sipping."
