TASTING NOTES: Old Romanian variety, traditional in the Cotnari vineyard, Feteasca Alba was the source of the princely wines, fine and full of elegance. In his grain, the fruits of the summer orchards are closed, which he then releases into the glass. It is the variety that, with its freshness, gives a good morning with an intense, floral nose, accompanied by fruitful notes (apples, pears and exotic fruits – mango, papaya). The taste bears the same fruity fingerprint, followed by an average taste, supported by fresh appetizers, with citrus finishes in the end. Sergiu Nedelea – sommelier

CULINARY RECOMMENDATIONS: cool, good accompaniment to fish or chicken, fine cheeses, white sauce pastes, or a refreshing appetizer.

TASTING NOTES: Leaving the sobriety of vinification “in red”, Feteasca Negara shows that it can also be a sprint. There is a lot of science and passion to make a rose wine from Feteasca Neagra, combining the tradition of this ancestral variety with the modernity of the present tastes. In the rose, the notes of red forest fruits are complemented by discrete tones of rose petals. The taste, intensely fruity, is dominated by good acidity. Sergiu Nedelea – sommelier

TASTING NOTES: Recognized as a national emblem of the Romanian vineyards, Feteasca Neagra, a Moldavian variety, fells at Cotnari like home. In the glass, this ruby red wine with noble purple reflexes meets you cute with a unique and elegant flavor, gradually opening to new sensory horizons. Typical of Feteasca Negru variety, the notes of slightly smoked dried plums are complemented by black cherries, mature cherries, blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. Flavors evolve to tobacco leaves, chocolate and spices (green pepper, cinnamon and jenibahar), with a rough, almost mentholic and extremely pleasant note. The gustatory attack is delicate, but with a strong personality, highlighted by the tanned velvety and the fruity nature (blackberries and blackcurrants, followed by black cherry notes). Sergiu Nedelea – sommelier

CULINARY RECOMMENDATIONS: it is recommended to be associated with red meat, cheeses or grill.
