Poletti vina


Rating: Very good

Peter Poletti appertains to a number of those Istrian winemakers arriving gradually at the top of the Istrian winemaking business. For long, his wines have been considered merely as a well-made product and Poletti alone has been known for years as a perfect promoter of the new wine industry and of the wine roads as a tourist product, rather than as a first-rate winemaker. But in the past few years things have changed for the better, gold medals for Malvasia and Cabernet Sauvignon awarded to him at the regional wine show of Istria-Vinistra, have proven that P. Poletti has finally succeeded in bringing together modern technology of wine production and passion for the wine itself. He is one of the few producing wine from a somewhat forgotten grape sort, the Muscat Rose. At any case, by paying a visit to his vineyards, canteen or to his wine tasting room, one can find out a lot about the Istrian wine and gastronomical tradition.
