Nocturne Rară Neagră 2020
Nocturne Rară Neagră from Chateau Purcari has an intense and bright ruby colour. Pure and intense aromas of sour red cherry and juicy red currants with a touch of oak spices and black plums. The aromas follow through to the satin textured palate, which reveals fine tannins and a relieving spicy sensation.

Careful hand harvesting of the fruit in the cool of the night to preserve the richness of aromas and intensity of taste intact. Selection by hand as well. The wine is produced using traditional methods, then ages for 6 months in French oak barrique.
Ageing potential: up to 10 years.
