Vitovska Skerlj 2020

Tax included

No significant spread of Vitovska is known outside the territory of the Trieste Karst, a unique hilly environment that surprises with its contrasting lights and colours. From this red, arid, barren and stony land, but rich in limestone and iron, thanks to special soil and climate conditions and the beneficial effects of the nearby sea, wines with a strong personality are obtained. Matej has recently renewed the Vitovska plantings by increasing the density and changing the training system to bush-training. The yield per hectare has thus been reduced to less than 40 quintals/ha. The vinification process is characterised by maceration on the skins, and then resting on aged wood for at least 24 months.

Skerlj - Sgonico


Among 80-year-old plots and more recent sapling and high-density plantings (10,000 plants with yields of around 40 quintals/ha), the Skerlj winery lives, thus completing the agritourism offer of this young family in the Italian Karst. It is the unique land of this area that plays with elegance, minerality and acidity, giving unique characteristics to the wines of this area. 30-40 cm of red earth, rich in iron, characterize the vineyards located on a plateau of rock only 250 m above the sea, swept by the Bora that blows from the east and by sea breezes. This hard land requires great work, which is done exclusively by hand by Matej, the soul of this company supported by his sister Kristina. Their hope is to obtain wines that are as territorial and seasonal as possible, fermented in open vats with maceration on the skins for a few weeks and aged in oak barrels in the cellar dug into the stone, without any manipulation (no filtration, no stabilization, no clarification)
