Lisičina Kalimut from Montenegro – “the wine itself could be defined as “rose”, though its colour and taste are somewhat reminiscent of rose hip tea. Herbal notes are dominant but there is also something like sweet, ripe tomatoes. Unusual and remarkable.”

By Mariusz Rybak

This rare autochthonous variety of Montenegro was an absolute surprise to me. I’ve never heard about it before. In fact, even in the region around Virpazar, few people grow it. The area of production is known in Montenegro for small, aromatic onions.

Vinarija Kalimut, run by the Ukšanović Family, is small and produces only from its own grapes.
