ORIGIN:

Fetească Neagră (or Black Maiden in English) is an old native variety that originates from Moldova and Muntenia and again is capable of producing some great wines of deep colour although the vine needs constant care. The later the grapes are picked the better the results and a constant trimming programme to arrest the vigour produce excellent results.

Fetească Neagră is a bramble fruited red with hints of soft cherry. It can vary greatly depending on terroir and oak influence, some can be earthy while others can boast flavors of cappuccino and vanilla.

WINE MAKING PROCESS:

Stainless steel tank fermentation at 25-27˚C with punching down the cap. Extended maceration was utilized to deepen and broaden the wine structure. 12 months barrel aged in second time used South Romanian oak medium + toasted (a blend of Q.sesilliflora and Q. robur). The treatments before filling has been kept to minimum in order to preserve the aromas therefore during ageing small sediments can occur.

TASTING:

Deep red color, intense flavors of dried plums, black currants and cinnamon. Silky on the palate and well balanced by the round tannins and vanilla hints coming from 12 months ageing in Romanian oak barrels.
It is recommended to be served at 16-18°C, along with well spiced steakes – veal, lamb and even chicken.
