ITALIAN WINE AT ITS' MOST DIVERSE
“Officially speaking, this is Italy, but, as is the case all along Italy’s border with Slovenia, the wine culture transcends national boundaries. Carso is a limestone-rich plateau that extends out from the city of Trieste and reaches toward the Julian Alps to the north, and it lends the wines, a firm acidic backbone and mouth-watering minerality. It makes this Vitovska a flinty, fragrant accompaniment to fresh seafood in Trieste, Muggia, and other fishing towns along Friuli’s Adriatic basin,
The Vitovska is part macerated on the skins for twelve to fifteen days. It has a fine, delicate, fruity nose suggestive of plums, yellow cherries and poire william, followed by a palate with an upfront entry as you might expect from a variety that shares its environment with the bora gales that batter the coast.

- No one should tell you what to eat with what wine, it is all down to personal preference, but if you'd like a steer on what this wine will taste particularly good with, we recommend:
SMALL TERRACES OF RED, IRON-RICH SOIL
The Azienda Zidarich is located in Prepotto, near Duino Aurisina, which is a small and characteristic village of the Carso area. The landscape is extremely varied and stimulating. The vegetation of the environment is very different and enhances the peculiarity of this territory dedicated to viticulture. Jagged chalky rock is the keynote of Carso viticulture, which is carried out on small terraces of red, iron-rich soil that have been reclaimed from the woodland. This lends the wines the characteristic acidity and mineral notes.
