“Paolo Vodopivec is a bona fide member of the brotherhood of natural wine producers, crafting his potions on the rocky outcrops of the Carso Peninsula near Trieste in northeastern Italy. The grape in play in the Solo MM9 is the native vitovska, fermented in buried Georgian qvevri (clay amphorae) for six months on the skins, followed by an additional two year sojourn in large, old oak botti. It’s a decidedly amber-orange tinged wine with a remarkable degree of complexity that takes several hours, if not days, to emerge after opening (decant well ahead of serving, not overly chilled, around 13-15ºC). The nose evokes orange pekoe tea, wildflower honey, dried peaches and apricots and fresh hay, among many other things. The palate has palpable tannic structure that subsides with aeration to a gentle dusty texture, while and ripe-balanced acids further shore up mouthfeel. Don’t expect a standard fruity wine - this moves well beyond that realm into the land of savoury-umami character. An original wine with a narrow audience to be sure, but one certainly worth a look to understand the expanding range of flavours available in the world of wine with a nod back to the style I imagine prevailed in ancient times. Available in 6 packs from the agent. Tasted August 2013.” - 92 pts,John Szabo, MS,

Outside, the Carso is the land of truth. Harsh, unpleasant, difficult. In a word, true. Land of stone and wind, of Nature strong and vigorous. Land of the seasons with dreamy colours, of air terse and pungent. Inside, the Carso is in the wine-cellar. Stone-made, part of an ancient house, witness to the long history of this territory the wine-cellar is an angle of Nature protected jealously, An ecosystem creating the ideal conditions for Nature to find its dwelling-place.Vitovska expresses itself without hurrying nature’s rhythms. The wine is kept in contact with its grape-skins in buried, terra cotta amphoras, without monitoring the temperatures, for six months. A two years’ rest in casks then brings the wine to maturation, giving it a chance to express the fullness of its taste.
