Description

Purcari Maluri de Prut 2019

This wine combines the best from both sides of the Prut river. Lovingly collected, the indigenous varieties of Feteasca Neagră and Rara Neagră have created a wine with a strong, tender character.

90 % Feteasca Neagră, 10 % Rara Neagră

Maluri de Prut shows a deep red color with shades of weathering. It is distinguished by the predominant aroma of berries and raisins, followed by emotional overtones of vanilla. The rich taste, full of vigor harmoniously combines notes of cherry and plum, passing in a long and balanced aftertaste.

The wine is 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.
