As with Veliko Belo, our aim was to develop a new type of wine. It is of particular importance with this wine that all three varieties of grape composing Veliko Rdeče be harvested as late as possible. All varieties then macerate together, giving a new style , new flavors and new aromas. This approach was a success, the aromas and flavors of Veliko Rdeče range from fruity to more complex, creamy flavors.
Veliko Rdeče is composed of:
- Merlot, acting as the wine's backbone and giving it its character. Red »grands vins« are expected to deliver a punch, resilience and ageing ability – all traits of the Merlot;
- Cabernet Sauvignon provides aroma. Cabernet Sauvignons exhibit a characteristic fruity aroma (flavor and perfume of blackcurrant), also noticeable in Veliko Rdeče, though it does not stand out.
- Pinot Noir is the element of love and conjures up peculiar flavors, curiously reminiscent of unpleasant things, but within Veliko Rdeče their presence is perfectly harmonious. The Pinot Noir's flavors might even hint at oil derivatives or tar
The colour has medium depth and garnet colour proudly showing its age. Nose is mature, gentle, rather subtle, fine and layered. Seamless. Nose of spices and blackcurrant gives a sense of Bordeaux grapes, coming from fresher, cooler climate. These are complemented with notes of truffles, dark chocolate and fine oak. Dry on the palate, with mature, supple tannins and silky texture. The aroma fills the mouth completely and gives unique, long lasting experience. This is quintessential Movia, demonstrating elegance and complexity. It is in excellent condition now, but will last for another two decades.
