Cotnari Domenii Fetească Neagră


From ancient times our ancestors were enjoying the red wine produced from Fetească Neagră. The seeds of this gape variety discovered by the archaeologists in ancient amphorae around Cotnari outline that today, unquestionably, Fetească Neagră is the emblem of Romanian oenology.

This ruby wine with noble purple reflexes presents a unique and elegant flavor, gradually opening to new sensorial horizons. Typical for Fetească Neagră variety, the notes of slightly smoked dried plums are completed by black cherries, ripen cherries, blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. Flavors evolve to tobacco leaf, chocolate and spices (green pepper, cinnamon and allspice), with an extremely pleasant herbal note, almost menthol. The gustatory sensation is delicate, but with a strong personality, highlighted by the velvety tannins and the fruity nature (blackberries and blackcurrants, followed by black cherry notes). – Sergiu Nedelea – sommelier

It is recommended to be associated with red meat, cheese or grill.
