Aromatic profile

Varietal Prokupac shows distinct aromas of cherries, black cherries, fresh plums, black currants, blackberries and, quite often, pleasant spicy notes. It is medium-bodied, with medium color intensity and often features distinct tannins. Further ageing adds to Prokupac's complexity and its tannins become softer, but still the wine does not lose its vivacity. If the grapes are sourced from good vineyard plots and in good vintages, Prokupac gives wines that can be aged for a very long time and develop into noble, mature wines. No matter whether young or aged, Prokupac always gives us authenticity in the glass.


Currently, there is no clearly profiled style of Prokupac on the Serbian market. Winemakers who make wines from this grape variety each create their own wine philosophy, build up their experience and affinities in the production of Prokupac wines, so one can find on the market a range of Prokupac wines: young and fruity, well-aged, with more or less oak, monovarietal or blends, etc. This is actually very good, because the winemakers will use their innovation and creativity in the best possible way to track their path to an ideal Prokupac and to define typicity of Prokupac in different terroirs.We can already taste white wine from Prokupac (blanc de noir), rosé wines ranging from light pink to darker colored traditional Ružica and a whole range of red wines, from delicate fresh fruit-forward wines vinified in stainless steel tanks to lush mature wines aged in large oak barrels. Over the last few years, we could also find on the market Prokupac made from partially dried grapes and the first late harvest Prokupac made from partially botrytized berries.
