SOL NEGRU Feteasca Neagra

145 MDL

Feteasca Neagra is one of our best-sellers at the winery. Giving the conditions offered and maintained during the maceration we obtained a unique character in our Feteasca Neagra, which was developed even more in oak barrels. With a not-so-intense ruby red color, it doesn’t promise a strong bouquet, however with the first approach we find complex, intensive notes of black pepper, vanilla, and coffee flavors. Within a few moments, it opens more with some toasty notes. The is velvety and spicy at the same time.
