LilaBudimir2011The color is dark purple-red , with orange hue on the glass rim. Smell of a cherry jam and violet. Medium body. In the mouth very elegant, cherry with a little spice in the background (white pepper) and noticeable fruit acids. Tannins do not feel. A medium-long, mild, fruity-spicy finish. Calmer and fresher than a previous vintage .


What else ? The winery, which makes good wines from this domestic variety , intended this version for export. Grapes from vineyards over 100 years old, only the best barrels are selected in the cellar (the rest goes to the market with a different label), wine is aged for at least 2 years in a bottles.. etc. The result is this premium wine, wild Prokupac which is a a little softened, elegant, but yet with a clear terroir. And very tasty. Note: if you find vintage 2008 somewhere, don’t skip it! The wild beauty of Serbia put in a bottle 🙂

The movie is modern and hard dynamic and the wine is a bit conservative and elegant. But both are great masterful work.
The movie was a Chinese Oscar nominee for 2018.
