Paraschos Bianco "Kai" 2016

In 1998 Evangelos Paraschos, an ethnic Greek who came to study and make wine on the Italian/Slovenian border, founded the winery with his ethnic Slovene wife, who he happened to meet in Italy while studying in Venice. Being one of the most intensely enthusiastic supporters of organic and natural wine production in the entire region, all of his wines follow a very unique, centuries-old traditional approach to winemaking that has been the heart and soul of the Collio-Brda microclimate. Their traditional handmade wines all come from clay and flysch-rich vineyards located in San Floriano Del Collio in Gorizia, right on the very border of Italy and Slovenia. This Tocai Friulano is gentle and warm, with spices of nutmeg and cinnamon, and chamomile and honey. Delightful, charming, and elegant, yet rustic and traditional, much like all Paraschos' wines, the wine spends 5 days on skin in open vats, and is then aged for 3 years in used Slavonian oak barrels and a further 2 years in the bottle. No sulfites are used and the wine is not filtered.
