Bibich Plavina Dalmatia 2018
Croatia, along the Adriatic coast directly across from Italy, has been making delicious wine for a long time. But somehow , its Western neighbors get all the play. Good for you as these wines, produced in Nothern Dalmatia, between Split and Dubrovnik, offer great value. This Plavina, a grape varietal related to Zinfandel, makes for a light and smooth red, redolent of dark fruit and finishing with a spicy kicker.
