Rara Neagră de Purcari 2020
Rara Neagră de Purcari is an escape from everyday life – an explosion of grace and elegance embodied in wine.
The ruby color, with a pomegranate accent is accompanied by a complex aroma with accents of chocolate and plum. The full taste, velvety with hints of dried fruits and vanilla comes smoothly into a fine oak aftertaste.
Made from grapes harvested and selected by hand, 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.
