Rodica Refosk, Truške

The picturesque hills near Marezige and Truške are located just five kilometers from the Adriatic, more specifically the Gulf of Trieste. Rodica’s terraced vineyards are planted at 250-350 meters of elevation and face south. They enjoy significant day-night temperature swings and good ventilation from the exchange of mountain- and sea-borne breezes. The soil is rich with minerals, consisting predominantly of limestone. 

In 1998, Marinko Rodica, a car mechanic, decided to change careers and become a winemaker. By 2008, the Rodica Family Winery had 60,000 vines and obtained organic certification for its farming. A brand-new, energy efficient cellar was completed in 2012. Today, Rodica estate farms 15 hectares of vineyards, most of them planted to Malvasia and Refošk.

After de-stemming, the organically farmed grapes are macerated with the pulp and skins for just a few hours and a spontaneous, wild-yeast fermentation begins. 

Deep ruby-black in color (a Refošk marker), with aromas of black pepper, coffee grounds, black raspberry and cherry, plum, cacao nibs, violets, roasted meat, and turned earth. Medium- to medium plus in body, with good freshness and relatively soft, grainy tannins. Plush and satisfying on the palate, with a grill-char note that makes you crave something from the grill.
