So my other fabulous purchase from Belgrade Airport was a bottle of Carica Milica Stono Polusuvo Vino, a Serbian red wine. With equally ornate label as the bottle of Car Lazar and a matching cheap price tag (just 300 Dinar or about £3) I thought it only fair to give this bottle a go too. It’s a lot less intense than the Car Lazar. For one thing, it is only 11% vol. alcohol in comparison to the Car Lazar which is slightly more at 12% vol. But the flavour, aroma and colour also quite different.
This is a paler red, more comparable to a Beaujolais. The taste and aroma, while fruity, are less intense. This is no bad thing. It just depends on your preferance. In fact, the fact that this particular vineyard makes two wines, quite contrasting but both of fabulous quality mean that there is something to please everyone. This is epitomised by my very own family. My Mother loved the Carica Milica, and not just because of its name! Whereas, my Father particularly enjoyed the Car Lazar. I, typically, liked both.
