Neagru de Dragasani LEGEND OF DRACULA
Negru de Drăgăşani is a unique and native grape variety and was created as a cross between Negru Vârtos and arguably Saperavi or Băbească Neagră (local grapes). Due to their position in the most southern part of the country and thanks to the influence of the Mediterranean climate and proximity of the Danube, the vines covering the Mehedinti hills have always produced the highest quality wines, which have been extremely well appreciated.
Manual harvesting in plastic crates, de-stemming and crushing, the must is pumped into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks where it is seeded with yeasts to complete the alcoholic fermentation, followed by the racking of the wine and the completion of the malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, where it is refined by a maturing period of about 6 months.
Clear, bright, intense ruby red, with violet hues. Dominant aromas of black cherries and forest fruits with hints of spices. Dry, full-bodied, strong and balanced, with round tannins, fruity notes, long finish.
It will be well suited with red meats, vegetarian and vegan dishes, fresh cheese.
Best served at 15°C.
