Vranac

The variety Vranac - authentic Montenegrin variety. Besides Montenegro, this variety is also grown in Serbia and Macedonia.

Basic description of this variety with all ampelographic characteristics, was given by academician Marko Ulicevic 1972. «From this variety is produced the dry wine, with unique taste and character, which highlights the Balkan. The berries are large and dark, but the wine is moderately strong and very generous.

Young wines produced from varieties Vranac are light colored, with a taste reminiscent of fruit jelly. Strong structure with tannins gives freshness. After aging 1-2 years, color of this wine becomes intense ruby. The scent becomes complex, with tones of cinnamon, chocolate, sweets, color, dark fruit and wood, such as oak. Palate is strong, the sharpness develops during the long and fine round finale».
