Plavina is without a doubt Croatia’s most underrated coastal red grape. Echoing the elegance of Pinot Noir, Plavina is a bit fresher, softer, brighter, more restrained, and livelier, so much so that one would never guess that it comes from a warmer climate on the rocky soils located right in front of the pristine Adriatic Sea. Piližota’s Plavina has really expressed its authentic Dalmatian characteristics: lively acidity, fresh red berries and fruit, lower alcohol that isn’t overpowering, a solid tannin structure, with a hint of chocolate and constant undertones of Dalmatian earthiness.
Food pairing: game, red meats, grilled meats, aged cheese, think Pinot Noir.
