Edi Simcic, Duet
(doo-EHT)

 

Tasting Notes: "Edi Simcic calls his wines “controversial.” Funny for a man whose <br />smile puts one completely at ease. But just over the Italian border, in the nature-blessed zone of Goriška Brda, Slovenia, Simcic is turning traditional heads with his stunningly bold wines. His Duet is pure Simcic: bold, stirring, compelling. Its richness is like a restaurant-only dessert: chocolate, cherries, cheesecake, and coffee. It’s silky tannins underscore a lush, ripe, fruit-full body that goes on and on, and will improve for 20 years."
