“It is often in the darkest skies that we see the brightest stars.”
— Richard Evans

Pinot Noir,
Skin contact maceration Pinot Gris,
Barrelled Cabernet Sauvignon.

The grapes for Minima Moralia Hope were hand-harvested.

Short skin-contact maceration (4 to 6 hours) was used for Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon and longer skin-contact (12 hours) for Pinot Gris.

For Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, aging was made in stainless steel tanks with bâtonnage, whereas Cabernet Sauvignon was barrel – aged for 4 months in new French oak.

A debut marked by the white fruit sensation – white cherry, white plum, white grape berries. After airing, red fruit notes are also unveiled, doubled by honey, pollen and exotic fruits.

The mouthfeel begins on fine roses and cherries, only to develop into passion fruits, pomgranate and fleshy sensations.

The fine perfectly integrated tannins are reflected in the unusual fleshiness of the wine, which
balances the high acidity that turns this rosé into a delicacy reserved for gourmet experiences.

Recommended serving temperature 11ºC – 13ºC.

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.
