94 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"The 2009 Vitovska Origine is a bomb. Rich, powerful and structured, it captures the essence of what makes Vitovksa in the Carso district so incredibly appealing. Dried pears, flowers, spices and mint all flesh out as this deep, resonant white shows off its irrepressible personality. The finish is long, rich and resonant. A broad, expansive white, the Origine should drink well early, but it also has enough depth to age nicely for at least a handful of years. Overall, the style is a bit exuberant next to the more subtle Solo MM9. Both wines are striking, each in their own way. The Origine was fermented and aged in large Slavonian oak casks. Drinking window 2013-2019." Reviewed October, 2013

"Based on 7 notes and 4 scores from 7 users on Cellartracker as of 2/17/16. Average score, 91.3 points. Median score 91 Points."
"Just one grape," Vodopivec explains, "because that offers more than enough to study." Wines made from just one grape, the indigenous Vitovska vines are grown on small plots surrounded by roughly stacked, stonewalls.
To hold the notion that the objective is "to disappear some day," says a lot of a winemaker who in the mid-1990s was identified, from the outside, as a part of a "movement", as an early Gravner protege`. Unescorted, Paolo Vodopivec traveled alone to Georgia when it was still a very dangerous voyage and officially closed to foreigners. A bracing and potently strong man, Vodopivec admits that it was a scary experience. "But I wanted to see that wine making culture for myself," he said. "Even if it meant a risk, there was something I needed to understand."
To visit Vodopivec is like visiting a 3ha Burgundian-like estate, transported and dropped among the limestone bedrock and surrounding woods of the Carso, just above Trieste. It is a remote, bucolic and private place, with small, pristine vineyards that Vodopivec has cultivated into head-pruned alberello that are guided by wires to support and protect the branches from the fierce bora winds.
A patient man, Vodopivec ages his white wines from three to four years in cask. Production, in even the most bountiful vintages, will reach 11,000 bottles, at most. If Vodopivec sees distinct differences among certain rows, there will be further separations in that harvest. In some years, as many as four, specific selections are made.
If you were to taste a Vodopivec wine unaware of the context of skin macerations and/or vinification in amphora (techniques that later became a fad of the born again naturalists), you'd probably have no idea that he had used either technique. And this is just as he would have it. The wines simply are - they don't refer to a style or person. They are vibrant and individual wines, clearly from a very special place and very well looked after. They are singular, pure and utterly unique.
