This Romanian red wine from the Nicoresti DOC-CMD region uses the old native Babeasca Neagra (Rara Neagra), a grape that has reputedly been grown in the region for 2000 years and is very popular with locals. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, 70%  the wine placed in stainless steel tanks and 30% is put into second and third-use barriques to complete malolactic fermentation for 3-4 months.
.
After this careful vinification, both batches are blended to perfection. This creates a wine of intense ruby appearance with dominant red fruit aromas. Elegance runs throughout the palate, with an acidity that accentuates the notes of red fruit, complemented by subtle vanilla and dark chocolate. The fine structure and mild tannins make the wine very easy to drink. Try with turkey, chicken, pulses or mature cheese.
