Plavina is without a doubt Croatia's most underrated coastal red grape. Oftentimes in the shadows of better-known varietals Plavac Mali and Babic, Plavina certainly has its own place and offers completely different characteristics from other Croatian coastal reds. Plavina is a bit fresher, softer, brighter, more restrained, and livelier, so much so that one would never guess that it comes from a warmer climate on the rocky soils located right in front of the pristine Adriatic Sea. With all grapes hand-picked, and the resulting wine only coarsely filtered, Pilizota's Plavina has really expressed its authentic Dalmatian characteristics: lively acidity, fresh red berries and fruit, lower alcohol that isn't overpowering, a solid tannin structure, with a hint of chocolate and constant undertones of Dalmatian earthiness.
