After the barrel ageing process, the wines are then selected for blending. Aged for 72 months in French oak barrels (225L)

Color: Deep ruby red color
Nose: Its aromas are intense and luxurious. We detect blackberries, black currants, Amarena cherries, ripe plums and red roses. Soon we notice buttery scents, which are interlaced with perceptions of sweet spices, and the combination reminds us of plum tart. With time, notes of cedar, carob and chocolate express, and the finish reveals a slight touch of eucalyptus and smoke
Palate: The mouthfeel is majestic. We sense softness, alcohols are well integrated into the structure. Its freshness is emphasised indicating its youthful character that is confirmed by velvety tannins. A wine of intensity, accentuated elegance and a vigorous body that pampers us with a long-lasting aftertaste reminiscent of ripe wild berries, sweet spices and chocolate. A wine that will only evolve its already emphasised elegance over the years

About the Winery:
Movia is more than a mere wine label, it is a way of life, life in all its purity of nature and sincerity of the author. A brand beyond time, Movia’s supreme standards are why they are sought after by so many wine connoisseurs around the world. From light classics, through a range of mature wines with good ageing potential, they are widely considered as one of the world’s finest.

A family estate with its main house in Ceglo, Movia covers 22 hectares of vineyards including many of the best parcels in the borderland between Slovenia (ZGP Brda) and Italy (DOC Collio). In the global market today, Movia is a synonym for wines with impressive character and extraordinary elegance. They offer a glimpse into the noblest of viticultural traditions.

The wines were given time to reach full maturity in their home cellar and are only released onto the market several years following their vintage. Succinctly put, they revived pre-classical vinification procedures that did not revert to sugar for re-fermentation in the bottle. Guided by winemaker Ales Kristancic, a fervent defender of Mother Nature, Movia wines are produced with the highest measure of respect towards the environment – no fining, no filtration, 100% natural.
