Zsolt Sütó cultivates 12 hectares of vines in the village of Strekov, in Slovakia.
Age of Vines: 6 years
Soil: Clay Loam, Loess
Grape: Alibernet (a cross between Alicante Henri Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon), Dunaj (cross of Blauer Potugieser and Sankt Laurent), Portugieser
Cellar: Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. A non-vintage blend of wines fermented in open casks and then aged in old oak for various amounts of time. Once blended, it’s bottled unfined, and unfiltered under crown cap, with zero addition of sulfur.
Personality: funky, earthy, incredibly congenial. As Zsolti says, the F in the name stands for “friendly, fresh, but also fucking good red” and he’s 100% correct on all accounts.
