Viticulture and Vinification
Feteasca Neagra grapes for this wine comes from special yield-reduced vines. Early in the season, workers go through the vineyards and individually cut a percentage of the grapes from the vine and throw them on the vineyard floor. This process is more painful for the viticulturist than the grape vine, which benefits by being able to put more of its resources into the remaining grapes, to give riper and more flavoursome grapes. In the winery the grapes are treated to the same fermentation on-skin process, with controlled temperatures around 28ºC and regulated remontage while an skins.
Violet red (typical for this variety), good limpidity.
Strong aromas of fruits (sour cherries, currants, plums), flowers and slightly vegetal aromas. It initially resembles wet tree roots after rain and the young plants in the forest, followed by notes of fruits and flowers, with vague tints of vanilla. Attack above average, very good acidity, a lively taste, with active, persistent tannins and integrated alcohol. Good body and taste dynamics, slightly vegetal ending interesting aftertaste for a young wine.
