Coronica Moreno


Rating: Exquisite

Moreno Coronica belongs to a younger generation of Istrian winemakers who entered the winemaking business following his grandfather's and father's footsteps. His newly built large cellar equipped with up-to-date technology seems as if it had nothing in common with the traditional methods but his persistence, determination and his passion towards autochthonous grape sorts has made him one of the largest producers in Istria. His malvasia, Gran Malvasia in particular, aged in barrique, has been considered by some a leader in the overall assortment of white wines in Istria. However, M. Coronica is very ambitious when it comes to teran, too; his Gran Teran ageing in the barrique is certainly one of the most interesting red wines of Istria. Oriented almost exclusively to local quality wines, namely Malvasia and Teran, Coronica has shown all the same how much he cared for traditional ways.
