This Montenegro red wine is made from the indigenous Vranac grape. The Pro Corde (For Heart) is produced only in good vintages and in small quantities. Deep red, blackberry and supple cherry notes dominate the nose, bursting into a pleasurable harmonious experience on the palate. This medium to full-bodied red is great with BBQ, sausages, cheese and of course a nice cut of steak.
"Rich nose with damsons, cedar spice and black cherry. Silky and intense palate with viscosity, fresh raspberry and blackberry fruit; tons of wine for the money."

Among all the incredible wineries in the Land of Wines, Plantaze is the perhaps the best known. It is the largest contiguous vineyard in the Montenegro (and, in fact, ALL of Europe) and it produces some of the region’s most incredible wines. This producer follows a 1000 year-old Montenegrin tradition of viticulture and wine making. The end result is something truly spectacular.
The wine is aged in ideal conditions. Visiting this vineyard is an amazing experience that is almost overwhelming. When we stepped in and saw hundreds of oak barrels lining the walls and toured the incredible wine cellars located in caves (and even one that’s in an old air force base!), our breath was nearly taken away.
