Wine makers

Degrassi Moreno


Rating: Exquisite

Unlike the majority of his fellow Istrian winemakers who generally established their reputation by making white quality wines, Moreno Degrassi, whose wine cellar is located in Bašanija in the north-west of the Istrian peninsula, since the beginning of his career as winemaker, has been building his image for the most part on the production of red wine aged in barrique casks. Nevertheless, white wines have been equally present in his cellar and he has won diverse awards for both, so if we take into account his entire assortment, we might conclude that Degrassi is perhaps the most heterogeneous winemaker in Istria.On the other hand, if somebody offered you a premium red wine from Istria, it is most probable it will be one of Degrassi\'s wines.
