CONSTANTINI PRESTIGE WINES


Winegrowing and wine producing estate CONSTANTINI, run by DUSAN and PATRICIA HUMAR are situated in Slovenia the vinegrowing region of Goriska Brda. This wine district is in the northern part of the Mediterranean region. According to the European Union wine regulations, the region is classified as zone CII. The family has been making wine in Brda since 1680 according to written sources, which results in a combination of tradition with modern approaches.

The unique aromas and taste of Constantini wines are derived from the chosen positions of the vineyards, the Eocene marl, sandstone and the microclimate all of each result in an top micro-terroir. Wines are a combination of experience and knowledge. The attention toward lower yields per hectare is a guarantee of selected grapes with concentrated flavour and richness in extracts.

The wine cellar is equipped with modern technology. We keep all the outside influeces during the production and refinement process to the minimum to keep the wine natural. Red wines are naturally matured in oak barrels in the optimum conditions of the underground wine cellar.

Constantini Wines are of high quality, unique and full-bodied with an elegant and persistent taste. Their freshness is perfectly balanced with complex aromas and distinct mineral flavours, which are reflections of variety and terroir. These characteristics grant them longevity and attaining ripening with perfect timing.

Vineyards

The vineyards are planted in selected, high quality locations in Brda district on both Slovene and Italian sides of the border (DOC Collio Goriziano). The soil developed on Eocene flysch sediments, offering excellent growing sites for vines. The vineyard slopes are terraced and face south. The Adriatic Sea is only twenty kilometres away, on average, and its proximity accounts for smaller temperature fluctations through the year and a rather peasant microclimate.  The proximity of the sea creates distinct conditions due to the sunlight being reflected from the sea`s surface, causing dauble exposure to the sun`s rays. The influx of air is twofold: from the south, warm air penetrates from Adriatic Sea, while cold air masses from the north are partly hindered by the last hills of the Julian Alps. Breezes from the Alps keep the summer nights fresh, playing a favourable role in terms of the acidity and aromatic substances of the grapes.

Grape yield: 1 to 1.5 kg per vine. The vineyards are surrounded by and thriving in harmony with acacias and elders that complement the wine`s taste and fragrance in a natural way.

White varieties: Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Sauvignon Vert are planted on slopes exposed to the south and southeast. Soil: flysch of Eocene origin (marl and sandstone), the soil is rich in minerals. The marl and clayey-sandy soils, including clay of Eocene origin, are planted with red grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. Sun exposure: S, SE and SW - sea - facing orientation. The vineyard soils are composed of layers of marl, sandstone and clay from Eocene with fossilised sea organisms like sea protozoa, named Nummulite. They were formed millions of years ago when the area was covered by the sea.
