Description

Negru de Purcari 2020

Negru de Purcari is fit for kings, with the Royals of Europe already enjoying it for years. Noble with a rich structure and generous bouquet, it truly has a regal palate. Intense ruby colour with a garnet hue. The bouquet opens with fine shades of plum, chocolate and fig. In time, it develops to reveal further fine aromas of vanilla and saffron.

This wine seduces with a deep and velvety taste, balanced with delicate tannins, flavours of oak and fruit tones. Negru de Purcari fascinates with a noble and magnificent taste, its value increasing each year.

55% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 40% Saperavi and 5% Rara Neagră.

The fruit is grown in estate vineyards close to the Black Sea.

Careful hand harvesting and selection. Vinification using traditional winemaking techniques and the young wine ages in French oak barriques for 18 months.

 

Ageing potential: up to 10 years.
