Teran, one of the most important Croatian red varieties, and the most important Istrian red variety, occupies a special place in Benvenuti's wine history. This wine comes from the vineyards in Španjole, 300 meters above sea level. Teran is fresh and complex at the same time and has a harmonious structure and an acidity that provides a lot of aging potential. Teran 2016, made in 6,000 bottles, has matured in oak for 24 months, after a maceration of 20 days.
Nicola and Alberto Benvenuti are the new generation of winemakers. Passionate, modest and very talented, they have been the crowned kings of Istria / Croatia for a number of years now. Both their dry and their sweet white as well as the special red wine have been voted the best in the country. Working sustainably, with family traditions of paramount importance, the Benvenuti brothers opt for indigenous grape varieties such as Malvasia and Teran. The microclimate on the terraced high-altitude vineyards near Kaldir / Motovun in the interior of Istria, in combination with the white background, ensures mineral expression and preserves freshness and aroma. They are digestible wines with a special freshness and minerality.
