ADD

Edi Kante’s scattered vineyard holdings on the Carso plateau total over thirty small parcels along the Italy–Slovenia border. While most are planted to white, Kante also grows a bit of Terrano, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon destined for this quirky and delicious rosso. It receives near-identical treatment to his whites: native yeast fermentation, aging in neutral barrels, and unfiltered bottling. Tasting the Carso’s limestone through red-tinted glasses is fascinating: just like Kante’s whites, it is lean, bright, and salty, with surprising aging potential. –Anthony Lynch
