Wine legacy of family Legović dates back to 1937. Since then, 4 generations have changed in producing best Istrian wines on Istrian red soil (terra rosa) within their 12 ha of vineyards. Valter Legović and his son Marko are living examples of total dedication to enology and producing wines from world recognized wine varieties in most appreciated wine regions producing unique and specific products.
When designing this sparkling wine, the Legović winemakers didn’t just go with the flow and played the safest bet with Chardonnay. Instead, they stayed consistent with their legacy and used Malvazija as the backbone of this sparkling wine. Intensive bubbles and delicate mousse are pronounced with the aromas of fruit and flowers typical for Malvazija. Charmat method of secondary fermentation in large isobaric tank results in light green apple aromas with discrete herbal aromas and touch of minerality in the aftertaste.
In the western part of Istria, near picturesque Kaštelir one can find Mekiši, genuine traditional Istrian stantias which is the home of family Legović. Vineyards are placed at 220 – 250 m above sea level at red Istrian soil terra rosa which is rich in bauxite and iron. These components attribute to wines minerality. This essence of climate is truly transfused to Legovina wines.
