Goriska Brda, Slovenia


In the realm of Chardonnay mastery, Slovenian vintner Aleks Simčič, renowned as the genius behind Edi Simčič, stands as a celebrated luminary. Renowned for his family's collection of exquisite single estate wines, celebrated as among Europe's finest, GIO emerges as a remarkable opportunity to relish an affordable creation, held to the same exacting standards. A symphony of precision unfolds, with one-third of the elixir maturing gracefully on the lees and in oak barrels, resulting in a wine that harmoniously marries the crisp, timeless elegance of the Old World with a delicate infusion of luscious viscosity. Within its vinous tapestry, expect to discover notes of green apple, zesty lime, and the warm embrace of baked pear, collectively woven to appease connoisseurs yearning for the "new generation" Chardonnay experience.

**Winemaker Biography:** Nestled in the heart of western Slovenia, the Simčič family's cherished farm may be too petite to produce the esteemed Giocato series independently. Still, Aleks Simcic's visionary artistry takes flight as he collaborates with a select cohort of organic growers in and around his village to craft these affordable vinous masterpieces. In this endeavor, Aleks upholds the same lofty standards and unwavering commitment to excellence that grace the single estate wines of Edi Simčič, ensuring that each bottle that bears his name embodies the very essence of exceptional winemaking.
