Regular price $27.00

Just the name of this wine makes me want to turn on some black metal music and drink from that special goblet I use whilst listening to black metal music alone in my closet. 

From the site:

"The Serbian Orthodox Monastery Tvrdoš is located in southeastern Herzegovina, 2.5 miles west of the old town of Trebinje and less than 20 miles from the Adriatic Sea. Dedicated to The Dominion of the Mother of God, it was built in the late 13th century above the right bank of the Trebisnica river on the foundations of a 4th century Roman church. An old epic folk poem mentions the monastery and "its monastic cellars filled with wine", a proof that the monastery was already well known for its winemaking in the Middle Ages."

This 100% Vranac is big, bold, structured and full tart black fruit. Cure some meat, pour this wine, talk to the Mother of God and work it out.
