Ritoznoj, Slovenia— 100% Frankinja (aka Blaufrankish) from Lower Styria in Slovenia. Inspired by the wines of Beaujolais, the carbonic maceration results in a fresh take on Blaufrankish. Ruby in the glass, this wine is bursting with ripe red fruits, strawberry, plum and spice. Well balanced with silky tannins and fresh acidity. Winemaker Izidor Vehovar often enjoys this with charcuterie and his own foraged wild mushroom soup.
