MASSIMO WINES LLC
Actor Massimo Dobrovic comes from a wine-producing family in Istria. Born into an Italian family in Croatia, a national minority in Croatia called Istrian-Italians, he is now bringing the family line of custom wines from Istria to the United States and the rest of the world. There are three flavors of wines and they will be available at stores and hotels beginning in the fall of 2019. Istria has indigenous grapes and the production of unique wines varietals such as Terrano, Malvasia and Moscato have grown immensely within the last couple of years. This will be the first year that Massimo is able to bring his family’s wines to the U.S. and the rest of the world. Massimo Wines is presenting three wine flavors which include: 1) Malvasia (White: 2017) wine is a straw-yellow color with greenish reflections. It’s scent is typical of such varietal, extraordinarily balanced between fruity and flowery, with distinct scents of black locust, elder and grapefruit making it fruity. It has a certain salty note and bitterness. which carries the trademark “Istrian Quality” since 2005, which is a trademark that is given out only to the most prestigious wines in the Northern Adriatic region of Istria that meets impeccable standards. 2) Terrano (Red: 2016) wine is ruby red in color, with purple reflections. It comes from an old indigenous Istrian grape with a scent of wild berries and violet. This is a dry red wine that is fresh and filled with tannin, which is characteristic for Terrano Istriano. 3) Moscato (White: 2017) wine is a crystal straw-yellow color. It has prevalent seductive aromas of fine fruit and meadow flowers mixed with a mild sweet aroma of black locust. It is the perfect dessert wine derived from the Northern Adriatic Region of Istria. “I feel so passionate about representing my family and minority origins by bringing these wines to the U.S. and worldwide,” said Massimo Dobrovic.
