It is reminiscent of blackberries, red cherries and a little of pepper. A wine of medium body and a more complex character of robust reds from the Goriška Brda region holding a soft texture and nice length, it has an ageing potential of up to five years.
Ageing: 24 to 30 months; matured in oak barrels of which a third are new.
Edi Simcic calls his wines “controversial.” Funny for a man whose quiet, timeless smile puts one completely at ease. But just over the Italian border, in the nature-blessed zone of Goriška Brda, 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. Its silky tannins underscore a lush, ripe, fruit-full body that goes on and on, and will improve for 20 years. 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc. 300 cases produced.
