Minima Moralia Devotion


“True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.”
— Henry Miller

Cabernet Sauvignon,

The grapes are hand-harvested. Cabernet Sauvignon and Marselan underwent classical maceration-fermentation in piston winemakers, whereas for Syrah we chose carbonic maceration of undestemmed grapes.

Aging was made in first and second use French and America oak barrels for 6 to 12 months.

On the first contact, Minima Moralia Devotion is a wine with a timid attack, with dark notes of dry figs, wood, earth and ink darkness.

It instantly unveils the jam and fresh fruits nuances, doubled by a less noticeable range of flavors which contribute to completing the whole – tobacco, fine leather, pepper and spices, a tinge of vanilla and an unperceivable allusion to exotic fruit.

The taste seems an encounter of youth and maturity, with well measured, perfectly integrated tannins, confering weight and balance to a youthful acidity that reduces somewhat the austere nuances of the wine.

Recommended serving temperature 16ºC – 18ºC.

Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea spreads over a blessed terroir with mild sun and harsh soil, like a precious mixture of basic nature and high-altitude human character.

Segarcea estate lies on the 44° parallel, known as „the quality parallel”, in the Southern region of Romania called Oltenia, 25 km away from Craiova city and 70 km away from the Danube. In Segarcea, vinegrowing is favoured by the terroir. The vines spread over the last hills that lead to the Danube. In the past, these hills were at the bottom of a sea which rose like a limestone pedestal covered nowadays by a chernozem bedding.

At least 1440 hours of sunshine annually, from the 1st of April to the 31th of October, favor especially the red varieties, without discouraging the whites. The annual rainfall raises up to 565 mm and the average annual temperatures reach 11 degrees Celsius. Ideal conditions to create strong character wines.

Segarcea — “the land of dream” as its Latin roots predict — is one of the twelve domains that the Royal House of Romania took under administration during Carol I, King of Romania, in 1884, by Parliament decision. This is how the Administration of the Royal Domains (ADC) was established.

The role of the royal domains was to support financially the Royal House, but also to become agricultural hubs in the avant-garde of technology and knowhow.

Among these domains, Segarcea was assigned the role of vineyard and winery, under the supervision of distinguished agronomists and winegrowers coordinated by Florian Davidescu and Dobre Radulescu.

Ever since, the wines from Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea have accompanied the country’s kings and statesmen to diplomatic receptions and witnessed history making, like a faithful servant.
