RV embodies the passion and experimental spirit of Lepa Vida winery. Its name is a nod to Irena's parents, Roman and Vilma, who started the winery over three decades ago. Matija, always up for a challenge, experimented with red wines and filled three barrels with a new blend. He simply wrote "RV" on them, which stands for "Rdeče Vino" (red wine in Slovenian). The name stuck and has now become an integral part of Lepa Vida's wine family, alongside MI and VI.

Making red wine in the Vipava valley presents a unique set of challenges. Weather conditions can vary greatly from year to year. Some seasons provide the perfect conditions for the ripening of late varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, while others bring wet and rainy weather in September and October that slow down ripening and cause concern for winemakers. However, with good and precise work in the vineyards, satisfying results can be achieved every year.

RV is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that showcases the character of the Vipava valley. Medium-bodied and fresh, the wine bursts with fruity notes in the mouth, complemented by oaky nuances from two years in used French oak barrels. The result is an elegant and complex wine that showcases the best of what the Vipava valley has to offer.

Tasting note

Lorenza Pravato, WSET Level 4 Diploma

Lepa Vida's RV boasts a friendly and inviting aroma of ripe red and black fruit, including plums, sweet black cherry, and ripe berries, along with a subtle underlying track of sweet spices and aromatic herbs that lend it a balsamic quality, such as mint and rosemary.

What's interesting about this wine is its moderate acidity and pleasant level of ripe tannins, which give it an overall restrained character and make it quite easy to drink. Whether you're a seasoned wine enthusiast or a casual drinker, RV 2020 is a versatile choice that's sure to satisfy.
