Area: Buzet, Croatia
The winery is located just below the hill on which Buzet is settled. In an old Italian water cistern made in the 30s. Fairly incognito from the outside, just a few big doors and an unadorned pergola mark its entrance.
Piquentum offers the typical aroma of Istrian Malvasia, Teran, Refošk , but in a completely sincere way. Believing in wines that need more time and are able to develop nice secondary and tertiary aromas.
