Only 4,5 and 5,0 NJP wines (Nenad Jelisic Points) are presented as the best vintages.

 

From October 2010, every time we update any information or write a new information, we shall write in parentheses when the update has last taken place e.g. (2010-10).

 

If for some wine stands behind the best vintages none, it means that the wine's price is too high for its quality or the wine's quality is too low.

Recioto, an Italian DOCG-wine, which is classed as the DOCG-wine from the vintage 2010. A Recioto-wine is usually made from three grapes: Corvina and/or Corvinone (40-70%), Rondinella (20-40%) and Molinara (5-25%). According to the rules of the year 2010: 1. the wine must contain 5-30% of Rondinella, 2. is allowed to add 10% of other domestic grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, 3. is allowed to add up to 15% of non-native grapes as Syrah and 4. may not be added more than 10% of a single domestic or non-native grape (not applicable to Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara). The grapes are harvested in September/October. The grapes are then air dried for about 90 to 120 days. This process is called appassimento (or passito). What remains after the drying are raisins like grapes with high concentration. They are crushed, fermented and then left in Croatian or Slovenian oak barrels for about 24 to 48 months. After the barrel aging, the wine is bottled and may be aged for another 6 to 12 months before the sale. Many Recioto-wines are aged for 10 to 15 years before sale. The best Recioto-wines have a very good aging potential, can be aged up to 30 years. The Recioto-wine gets its powerful sweetness since the dried grapes do not get or cannot, due to excessive sugar content, ferment completely. (2017-03)

 

Remontage, French, an over-pumping method, i.e. a method where the must is pumped from one fermenting tank to another to mix the grape skin mass (chapeau) with the must. (2010-10)

 

Remuage, French, a part of the champagne manufacturing process that is carried out after the wine has finished to ferment in the bottle. The process itself is carried out by the gradual tilting of the bottle neck down, meanwhile the bottle is rotated clockwise and anti-clockwise. As the angle of tilt increases, the forces of gravity draw the sediment into the neck. When the sediment has stopped to collect into the neck, the process ends. (2018-11)
