Ambitious and lively, requires everything to be done “to perfection”. Unique tone underscores a great ego. This wine’s distinctive personality and typical characteri-stics make it an excellent standard bearer for Romanian wines.
Vinification: The harvested and destemmed grapes are subjected to alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is then fined in wood barrels for at least six months before bottling.
There are records of the variety existing in Romania’s Prut valley (Iasi county) over 2,000 years ago. Today, Fetească Neagra is the red grape that best represents the country’s vocation for wine making. The name (“Black Girl” in Ro-manian) is probably due to an exuberant personality that creates characteristic wines with great aromatic complexity, pleasing structure and good potential for ageing.
The ideal accompaniment for raw milk medium cheeses and white meat.
