Dear Matej,

at a glance (very quickly, sorry...), it seems to me that you did not 
specify the initial T and S values for all your vertical levels, namely, 
either prescribing all 25 values, or simply imposing:


I'm also sending you (and the MITgcm community) a link to a couple of papers 
focused on the Gulf (or Bay...) of Trieste and discussing some numerical 
simulations carried out using the MITgcm model.
Of course, any comments/suggestions/criticisms are more than welcome!
Matej, please feel free to contact me for any questions about this (very 
specific) area.

Cheers (zivijo)!
