Pinot Noir De Purcari 2019
Pinot Noir de Purcari is a light and delicate wine like fine silk.
The purplish red color is accompanied by a variety bouquet with complex aromas of strawberries, raspberries and violets. Velvety taste, full, persistent, passing in an aftertaste with fine nuances of maturation.
Made from grapes harvested and selected by hand, and produced using traditional methods. Aged for 6 months in French oak barrique.
By the end of the twelfth century, Moldova’s wine industry had become a major sector of Southeastern Europe’s economy. While the whole region has favorable conditions for viniculture, specific areas are especially fertile for growing the most full-bodied grapes. The village of Purcari and the Agon Zograf Monastery vineyards lay at the heart of this special terroir.
Recognizing similarities in the soil and climate with the Bordeaux region, French settlers entered into partnerships with the monastery and began cultivating Purcari’s special vintages in the eighteenth century.
