ABOUT THIS WINE
Vinification: Characteristic late harvest, hand picked, short vine-to-fermentation times (max. 2h). Primary fermentation in large tanks on natural yeasts obtained from the same pre-harvested grapes (5%). Macerated 1 day, hence the sensitive rosé hue. Followed by gentle pressing at low pressure levels. Secondary fermentation completed in barrique barrels on the lees, no racking. No sulphur or any other preservatives used before bottling. Following four years of maturing in barrique barrels the wine completes all its natural processes and become naturally stable, ready for a long life.
Dégorgement – removal of sediment:
The vintage base wine was matured for a few years and added to each following year until the wine from all barrels were assembled in a large tank. Contrary to the classical method, no sugar was used nor were any yeasts added for fermentation in the bottle. Only must with all its substances and its world of microorganisms was added. The matured wine then ferments in the bottle creating the PURO.
Fermentation in the bottle:
Puro is a very special sparkling wine as it is not degorged by ourselves. This is left to you, when you open the bottle. The wine thus continues its life with its own natural yeasts in the bottle until the very end and it contains no preservatives. The advantage is that the wine has an endless life. Some may find this procedure of opening the wine unpractical. But we believe that practicality is a factor taken into consideration only with regard to the outside world, never with regard to the inner-self or life in general.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Year zero for the Movia estate, as some would say, dates back to Anno Domini 1820 when the family's daughter married Mr Kristančič. Ever since the estate has been cultivating grapevines, alongside traditional fruit production so characteristic of the Brda region, with increasing success and ingenuity.
Nevertheless, they did not forget Nature's bequest: be genuine, respect and do not stand in its way. That is why Movia is more than merely a brand. It is nature's agent in your wine glass, in you.
The Movia estate has existed since 1700 and has been in the hands of the Kristančič family since 1820 following a wedding. The estate covers 18 hectares of land, half of which lie on the Italian side of the Collio.
After World War II the vineyards remained in the family's hands, allowing the continuation of this tradition in the Brda. Our wine's quality allowed the Kristančič family to become exclusive suppliers of wine for state protocol events in the former SFR Yugoslavia in 1958. In keeping with the family's decades of winemaking endeavor, Aleš honed his skills in Bordeaux and in Burgundy, returning back home with the idea of a completely different concept of wine production, enriched with new knowledge of modern winemaking and marketing concepts. It was on the basis of these new ideas that the historical breakthrough of Slovenian wines began.
The Movia brand is among the most important and most frequently awarded wines in South-Eastern Europe. One fifth of the Kristančič family's annual production is sold domestically, while all of their remaining product is sold to world markets.
