The wine is unusual, with a smooth tannic texture, intense ripe fruit. It is juicy, funky and unpolished.
Aci’s vineyard yields are very low, but the sugar and extract from the grapes are high. In 1998 he discovered biodynamics, and has since followed that approach. Aci is fiercely traditional in his farming and winemaking. He describes it as archetypical wine. He doesn’t add sulfur or rack. The wine is left in wooden casks, and when he feels it has stopped its progress he bottles. The wine is meant to tell a story of a vintage, but always with the greater theme of Rifnik. Aci believes that farming naturally both encourages vitality and “energetic forces” in the soils, but also maintains their quality for future generations.
“The biodynamic viticulture and all the processes developed in accordance with nature is important, as consumers can chose and influence who pursues re-awakening already forgotten farming methods.”
