After seven years of research and tens of different micro and macro trials, at the beginning of the ‘90s a completely new technology of the vinification was designed and in 1993, Vranac of the specific name ‘Pro Corde(‘for heart’) was launched at the market.Traditional maceration and vinification were performed during production of the wine Pro Corde, by special technological procedure, resulting in the increased contents of proanthocyanidols, natural ingredients of the grapes that can bind the free radicals and they have a beneficial effect on the human body. The colour of the wine is dark ruby.On nose, expressed , fruity aromas with the dominating blackberry and cherry aromas . Well balanced wine with noticeable tannins that are finely harmonized with the tones of the ripe, red fruit. The wine is full bodied and longlasting.

Pro Corde is ideal with the good quality, young beef meat-  the beefsteaks, roasted lamb meat, game meat as well as with the poultry-with the roasted goose or duck . It matches great with the spicy goulash as well as with the grilled tuna fish. It is perfect with mature, hard cheese.
