Mavrud “Vinica” is an iconic wine for winemaker from Zagreus. The originality of this wine is due to an approach borrowed from the winemakers of northern Italy. This technique is unknown on the territory of the country, is put into practice for the first time by the winemaker Zagreus. After harvesting the wine grapes (vintage), the Mavrud is dried for two months in an open and dry place, which allows to obtain a natural concentration of sugars and acids. After eighteen months of aging in Bulgarian oak barrels, the result is wonderful: a wine nectar of a dark ruby color, which reveals distinctive spicy aroma on the nose. To smell the bouquet of candied red fruits. We recommend to decant the wine for half an hour. On the palate it appears rich, robust, consistent, complex and gives full scope to a ripe fruit that drags at the fin. The wine has a long aging potential.
