Tasting Notes - Kmetija Mahnic - Angeli Likor - Cipro Sladko Vrhunsko Vino ZGP - Slovenska Istra - 2011 – L. 001

Produced by the Kmetija Mahnic Winery in Dragonja in the south of Slovenia, this sweet wine is made from Cipro grapes which have been dried on the plant; Cipro is the name that the locals give to what we know as Moscato Rosa, a grape which is almost certainly of Balkan origin.


In the glass, in which we find that this wine has a dark amber colour, we also catch a pleasant scent of dried rose which is typical of this variety. This note is further enriched by hints of strawberry jam, chinotto (myrtle orange), dark chocolate and tamarind; as a whole, the bouquet is of a good quality, pleasant and of a good complexity. In the mouth, the Angeli Likor has an intense taste, but it is also harmonious thanks to its marked freshness and light tannins which balance the obvious sweetness.
