  1. 2007 Quattro Mani Toh-kai ($11)

Kristancic makes this affordable, earthy white at Movia for the well-known Italian wine importer Domaine Select Wine Estates.

  • 2006 Movia Pinot Grigio ($29)
  • Kristancic’s lightly honeyed Pinot Grigio is much more complex and powerful than most.

  • 2006 Movia Sauvignon ($29)
  • Long-lasting and silky, this Sauvignon—which undergoes extended aging in oak casks—offers lots of grapefruit and citrus peel.

  • 2004 Movia Pinot Nero ($34)
  • This Pinot Noir’s luscious depth is surprising given Brda’s cool climate; the flavor suggests black cherries and wild herbs.

  • 2003 Movia Cabernet Sauvignon ($39)
  • Minty black currant notes are at the core of this aromatic red, which is only released after lengthy barrel aging.
