SOL NEGRU Pastoral
The word “Cahors” comes from the French city’s name Cahors and in 1971 the wine “Cahors” became a protected name. Cahors was made from Malbec grape variety from the 13th century. At least 70% of this grape variety gives prune tones to the wine. Pastoral, which means Easter, is a Moldavian word, an alternative to the word Cahors.
Asconi Winery Pastoral is vinified from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, through the process of alcoholisation of the must, which allows the preservation of natural sugar and balanced taste. It is intense, round, with notes of dried cherries and plums, carefully covered under cocoa notes and a gentle hint of wood from aging.
