Notes

 
The color is quite intense reminiscent of old gold. The nose is so complex, varied and beautifully fresh, full of life that one might an impression that the wine is actually much younger. On the palate we find fine layers of butter, honey, wild flowers, blackcurrant and orange peel all complemented with gentle caramel and butterscotch notes. Very, dry medium bodied on the palate, with vibrant acidities and touch of tannins. Veliko belo has always been our playground to experiment and push limits further and further. It is ready to be enjoyed now, but will last for a decade, maybe even two. Another quintessential Movia wine.
 
The wine’s complexity means it pairs well with a wide selection of foods, though this wine definitely is sensitive as to its company. Drink it at the right time; even without food, this wine will be enough, suitably strong and aromatic.
