This Fetească Neagră is astonishing with its elegant, unique character that manages to delight even the most demanding palates with its aromas, delighting the palate every time, but especially when served at a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius, after a previous decanting of 20-30 minutes.


Grapes were harvested by hand from a carefully selected plot, characterized by a sandy substrate, with infusions of stone and calcareous rock, and southeastern exposure. Harvesting was carried out at a sugar content of 230g/l, in the second decade of October. The grapes were destemmed without crushing and placed in macerators, where the maceration and fermentation process was closely monitored for 12 days. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation was carried out in stainless steel vessels and maturation took place in Romanian oak barrels for 24 months.


Discrete vanilla aromas complemented by chocolate notes. The taste is dominated by prunes on the palate. Elegant finish with slightly spicy notes. Serving: Slightly chilled (14°C), decanted (20′-30′) accompanied by a tasty dinner and friends.

Harvest: The grapes were carefully hand-harvested in the morning until 10 o’clock, with great care, at a sugar content of at least 195g/l. They were then destemmed without crushing. The grapes were cooled to a temperature of 10°C and then macerated in the press for 6-8 hours.

Vinification: After gravity settling for 24 hours, the must was fermented in 2000L vessels at 12°C for 18 days. To achieve the desired sugar content, controlled fermentation was stopped by cooling to 5°C.

Manifest: AVERESTI is the keyword that designates not just any Busuioaca but only the original one, which has enjoyed the recognition of specialists and enthusiasts for decades (some say even centuries). The Busuioaca grapes have found the best soil and climate conditions here at Averești to express themselves tastefully and aromatically in a unique way – often imitated but never equaled. Through the careful cultivation of several biotypes of Busuioaca, seductive wines are born at Averești, characterized by freshness, intense taste, and high-quality aromas that set the benchmark for this variety.

The Diamond 0.75L collection is dedicated to the Romanian varieties that have found their best expression in the Averești vineyard: Zghihara, Busuioaca de Bohotin (vinified dry and semi-sweet), and Fetească Neagră are the carefully vinified varieties, in a modern manner that reinterprets the old wines from Romanian varieties. Produced in a limited edition of 1500 bottles, the Diamond Magnum collection includes 2 wines made by dry and semi-dry vinification of the much-loved Busuioaca variety, in the unique manner of Averești Domain. With this collection, Averești Domain redefines the standard of freshness and elegance of the most aromatic and fragrant Romanian rosé variety.
