Pikasi is the project of Matic Rodica, a young Slovenian winemaker (and professional ballroom dancer) who, in collaboration with friend and farmer Peter Stegovic, produces naturally fermented wines from indigenous grape varietals. The vineyards are situated on the steep hills of the Vipava Valley in southwest Slovenia, just north of the Italian port city of Trieste. Matic makes a couple of wines from the Barbera grape (including this rosé) which is not something we usually see with Slovenian wine. Barbera hails from Italy and is their 3rd most planted grape so you'd think you'd see more of it in neighboring countries but Slovenia is the only other European country that seems to grow it. Matic's Barbera rosé is a fun, easy-going introduction to the region and is the perfect summer bottle to share with friends. Its refreshing combo of red berries, creamy texture and subtle salinity will pair well with a caprese salad or maybe some roasted veggies and baked fish. Also, fun fact: the label artwork is silhouette drawing inspired by photos of Matic's dancing.
